On February 25th, Western Health Advantage (WHA) will be raising awareness about colon cancer by participating as a sponsor and as a team – WHAtch Your Tushie – in the 2017 Sacramento Undy Run/Walk put on by the Colon Cancer Alliance.
Last year, Sacramento was one of 24 cities nationwide to hold an Undy Run/Walk, and this February we will be hitting the streets in our boxers or briefs for this family-friendly event. The Undy Run/Walk is a fun twist on a serious topic which is sparking much-needed conversations and kicking colon cancer’s butt, one city at a time. And if that’s not enough, you even have the chance to stroll through a larger-than-life inflatable colon on site and learn more about colon cancer! (How many chances do you have to do that in your life?)
The 5K and one-mile fun runs – which take place in William Land Park – include a wellness expo area and a special ceremony to support everyone impacted by this disease.
A healthy diet, daily exercise and proper colon screening can help prevent and detect colon cancer. WHAtch Your Tushie and get your colon checked! Talk to your doctor and together decide what's best for you. For more information, visit the American Cancer Society.
