ASCRS has formed an exciting partnership with the Colon Cancer Alliance. This leading national patient advocacy organization puts on the Undy Run/Walk nationwide and we’re helping get the word out to encourage participation, get people talking about colon cancer and raise money to support important research efforts. In order for this partnership to thrive, we need your support.
The Undy Run/Walk is a family-friendly 5K run and one mile walk, formerly known as the Undy 5000, and gets people talking about colon cancer prevention, with the ultimate goal of saving lives. By participating—whether to support a loved one, honor the memory of someone lost to the disease, raise awareness or simply run through the streets in a wild pair of undies—their community of survivors, families, healthcare professionals, runners, sponsors and friends are making a difference across the country.
In consideration of the Society’s efforts to promote the Undy Run/Walk and engage its members, the Colon Cancer Alliance will donate $1 of every paid event registration to the ASCRS Research Foundation. Based on current projections, these Research Foundation contributions could reach $15,000 to $20,000. The money raised will fund research focused on investigating the molecular basis of young onset colorectal cancer, a growing group of people being diagnosed with colon cancer.
