“There were people dressed as super heroes, somber families remembering loved ones lost and enthusiastic survivors celebrating their monumental fight. Although I could pick out my teammates from the crowd by their neon shirts, I felt alone. The emotion of the event overwhelmed me from the moment I arrived. It was a steamy day in downtown Philadelphia and my group of family and friends were joining me at the Colon Cancer Alliance’s Undy Run/Walk. It was the first thing colon cancer related event that I had ever participated in, and it was somewhere I never thought I would be.”

“The Undy Run/Walk is a lot of fun! What other race encourages you to run in your underwear? But more importantly, the Undy supports the Colon Cancer Alliance which has been my best support throughout my treatment and the years since. Through the Colon Cancer Alliance I have met so many other survivors who have shown me how to live with this disease I only knew how to die from it.” – Vanessa Brannan, Tacoma

“We are running again this year because 4 years ago, at the age of 37, I found out I had colon cancer. My family and friends run each year to raise money and encourage folks to get tested!” – Jen Lopez of Team Vowel Movements (formerly the Super Buttholes), Tacoma

“We are taking to the streets, offices, social media and anywhere we can to voice our commitment to help raise awareness to prevent and conquer colon cancer. We are very serious about this cause because we lost our son/brother/father/husband/uncle/best friend, Fernando Puello, to this disease in August of 2011. We feel that even though he lost his battle with this disease, his journey and fight should not go unnoticed. If our efforts can help anyone, then we are that much closer to succeeding.” – Team Fernando, Ft. Lauderdale

Sonja Darrel is a 28-year-old mother and wife who loves spending time with her family. She has always been active and healthy, so when she started having consistent stomach pains and abdominal discomfort, she knew something had to be wrong.
After coping with symptoms for over a year, Sonja finally decided to take her health into her hands and scheduled an appointment with her doctor.
