The third annual Phoenix Undy 5000 5K run will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 30 at the State Capitol District (1600 W. Washington St.) to help bring greater awareness to colon cancer. The Colon Cancer Alliance, a national patient advocacy organization dedicated to ending the suffering caused by colon cancer, will host the event.

The goal of the event is to educate the public about colon cancer, promote screenings and get people talking about this deadly, but preventable, disease. This event also raises much needed funds to support and build the CCA's national and local patient support and innovative public awareness programs. A generous portion of the proceeds will fund treatment services for those diagnosed with colon cancer in Arizona's Fit at Fifty HealthCheck Program.
