You Can't Be Serious...Underwear?
The Undy 5000 events are designed to draw media attention, give survivors and caregivers a voice, and get people talking about colorectal cancer, while raising funds for work in this area.
Participants in the Undy 5000 will be encouraged to draw attention to their bottoms—and colorectal cancer—by running or walking in their boxers, bloomers or boxer briefs! But choosing to dress up in boxers or bloomers for the event is entirely optional! You can still show your support by participating in your sweat pants or favorite running shorts.
This might mean matching team boxer shorts for some, colorful boxer briefs for others, or even logo-branded shorts for corporate teams. And instead of handing out a boring old race T-shirt, our participants will receive race-branded boxer shorts!
Because people don’t like to talk about colorectal cancer. And talking about it will save their lives. We need people to talk about colorectal cancer at their doctor’s office, around the dinner table, at the grocery store, while waiting in line at the local car wash…everywhere. CCA is willing to do anything to get people to speak out about colorectal cancer. A crowd of people in their boxers…eventually in hundreds of towns in the United States… will help us get there.
