The Undy 5000 Comes to Washington, D.C. to Help Increase Colon Cancer Awareness

The first annual Washington, DC Undy 5000 5K run will be held on Sunday, October 3 at 8:00 AM at East Potomac Park. The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA), a national patient advocacy organization, will host the event as part of its week long DC Goes Blue campaign, which is designed to help educate the public about colon cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States.

“Washington, DC has one of the highest incidence rates of colon cancer in the nation,” said Andrew Spiegel, CEO of the Colon Cancer Alliance. “Bringing our highly successful Undy 5000 to Washington, DC provides us with a great opportunity to bring greater awareness to colon cancer and the importance of being screened to help prevent this disease. This is a fun, healthy way to inform people about colon cancer, while helping save lives.”

CJs C&O 5k Walk/Run to Remember

The second annual race in honor of the late Charles Jess Hull II (CJ) takes place Saturday, August 28 at 9am.

Hull was passionate about running, and could almost always be spotted wearing a bandana running on the Tow Path. This was one of his favorite places.

In honor of his memory and to celebrate his life, Hull’s family created CJs C&O 5k Run/Walk. This non-profit event is created to honor Hull and others who were taken by cancer and enable the family to raise needed funds to find a cure for this terrible disease while doing something CJ loved to do…..RUN.

A portion of the money earned will go to the Hull Family Trust.  The Trust aims to preserve cultural heritage and promote environmental sustainability by empowering communities in developing countries.
