Community Outreach

Join the 2016 Philadelphia Undy Run Walk

On Saturday, September 10, Penn Medicine will be participating as a team in the 2016 Philadelphia Undy Run/Walk. The Undy Run/Walk is a family-friendly event that was created by the Colon Cancer Alliance. It is unique because participants are encouraged to run in their boxers to bring attention to the area affected by colon cancer.

A portion of the Philadelphia Undy Run/Walk proceeds will go to the UPHS’s Colon Cancer Screening Navigation Program, which helps West, South and Southwest Philadelphia patients complete colon cancer screening, one of the most powerful ways to prevent colon cancer.

Please support Penn Medicine's involvement in the Undy Race with a tax-deductible donation. Your support will help us end colorectal cancer and save lives. Click on "Make a gift" on the right side!

Join the Team

Your participation in the Undy Run/Walk also helps the Colon Cancer Alliance and its local partners fight colorectal cancer in critical ways. 

For more information, to participate, donate and more, please visit http://www.ccalliance.org/undy-runwalk/, locate the Philadelphia event and search for team Penn Medicine.

Questions? Please email Alicia at alicia.lamanna@uphs.upenn.edu, and let’s go team Penn Medicine!
