Sacramento is one of 16 cities nationwide that holds an Undy RunWalk, and this February we will be hitting the streets in our boxers or briefs for this family-friendly event. The Undy RunWalk is a fun twist on a serious topic, as this attire often sparks important conversations about preventing colorectal cancer and the stigma that is associated with it. And if that’s not enough, you may even have the chance to stroll through a larger-than-life inflatable colon on site and learn more about colorectal cancer! (How many chances do you have to do that in your life?)
The 5K and one-mile fun run/walk – which take place in William Land Park – include a wellness expo area and a special ceremony to support everyone impacted by this disease. The run/walk begins at 9 a.m.
A healthy diet, daily exercise and proper colon screening can help prevent and detect colorectal cancer. WHAtch Your Tushie and get your colon checked! Talk to your doctor and together decide the type of screening that's best for you. Learn more about colorectal cancer from the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.
