Call It Like It Is: New Name for the Undy Series

Posted on May 13, 2014

Have you been participating in our Undy 5000 for years, but never knew what the 5000 was all about?  After hearing that the name “Undy 5000” didn’t resonate with a lot of people, we have some good news – we are excited to announce that the Colon Cancer Alliance’s signature Undy 5000 5K series will now be known as the Undy Run/Walk!

“The Undy Run/Walk will still be the same inspiring community event as it always has been. It brings together people affected by colon cancer and those in the community interested in the cause,” says Todd Setter, National Director of the Undy Run/Walk series. “We will continue to use this fun community event to make light of a serious subject and hope the name change will bring even more people out to join us.”

Look for this name change at an upcoming Undy Run/Walk near you and be sure to check out our updated logos, Twitter and Facebook pages. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter by sharing your favorite Undy memory using #undy, and celebrate the occasion by using discount code “NAMECHANGE” to register for an Undy Run/Walk with a $5 discount! You might still see the Undy 5000 name here and there for a bit as we work to make this shift complete. But never fear – we’re on the case and will be making these changes as time goes on.

Don’t forget, the Colon Cancer Alliance serves as a source of information about colon health. If you have questions or are in need of support, please contact our free Helpline at (877) 422-2030. We’re here to help!

    I currently have stage 4 colon cancer and I am bravely kicking that cancers ass with much help from family and friends. More information concerning your undy series would be appreciated. Do you have anything in the Cleveland, Ohio area? Smiles and big hugs to you all.
