Make a HUGE Impact with Your Very Own Inflatable Colon
Supersize your events all year long with a walk-through inflatable colon. Featuring various stages of disease, our colons are now available in three sizes – mini, medium and giant. This fun and memorable educational tool is a sure crowd-pleaser for your awareness event. Check out the new prices and new inflatable colon rental program.
The Cure For Your Winter Blues: Undy Fever!
The Undy 5000 is our signature 5K run/walk and we're coming to a city near you! Not only does this event increase colon cancer awareness nationwide, but it encourages you to do something you generally aren’t allowed to – run in your underwear! Register now at undy5000.org.
Hero of the Month
After losing her mother to colon cancer in December, Rebecca Leroux set out to prevent others from going through what her family did. She’s using our Undy 5000 as an avenue to create that change.
"Colon cancer doesn’t have to affect you the way that it affected my family. You can spread awareness and make sure people you know and love get checked early, when the chance of beating this cancer is much higher."
