This year marks the first year for the UMC Undy Run, which is a fundraiser that raises awareness for Colon Cancer.
The run was the last weekend in March, which is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is the 2nd most common cancer, while among the easiest cancers to treat if caught early enough. The Undy Run is just one of the ways UMC informs the community about the importance of colon screening and preventative measures to take to keep your colon healthy.
The event was for anyone, and all funds raised money for families a part of the Colon Cancer Alliance organization, and for the UMC Cancer Center Celebrate Today Fund.
Overall, the first event was one for the books and raised $4,000! Thanks to everyone who participated, we are already looking forward to next year’s Undy Run!
