2012 Denver Undy 5000
On June 23, 2012, the Colon Cancer Alliance and the residents of Denver, Colorado braved the 97 degree heat to run and walk to fight colon cancer. At the beautiful City Park, nearly 1,100 participants came together (in their underwear!) in honor of and in memory of those who have been affected by colon cancer. These local participants helped the CCA raise over $110,000 to help support local and national awareness, screening, and prevention programs. A portion of the proceeds will be left behind with the University of Colorado Cancer Center’s Colorado Colorectal Screening Program to support colon cancer screening programs for uninsured Coloradoans.
Local sponsors included Braintree Laboratories, Arapahoe Gastroenterology, Diversified Radiology of Colorado, South Denver Gastroenterology, University of Colorado Cancer Center, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Exempla St. Joseph’s, Rocky Mountain Gastroenterology, Toyota Motor Sales, and LevelTerrain.com. National sponsors included Dulcolax, Genentech, Salix Pharmaceuticals, Ethicon Endo-Surgery and Amgen Oncology. Thank you to all Undy 5000 participants and the Denver Undy 5000 committee for helping to put on this fantastic event.
