Colon Cancer Event

I've been meaning to post information about this event for some time, and realized it's not too far away so I had better get on the ball!

The Colon Caner Alliance is sponsoring a 5K and 1 mile fun run in 3 US cities, and one of them happens to be right here in Tempe at Kiwanis park on November 15th! My cousin, Anna, is running in the same race on November 1st in Dallas, TX...I had to give a shout out to her, and running buddy Stacey who is recruiting people to run here! :)

I have every intention of attending, even though I won't be running. It has kind of a fun spin, that I hope turns out okay! They encourage runners to run in their (appropriate) underwear, and instead of getting the typical race t-shirt, participants get a pair of boxers. The goal is to "do something outrageous to raise awareness about colon cancer". Kiwanis isn't the most public of places to make a scene, but all the Saturday morning park goers are in for a real...uh...treat? :) Of course you can run/walk in your normal work out clothes too.

If you're interested in running/walking you can click here for more information and registration. And be sure to let me know if you are, so I can cheer you on from the sidelines!! :)
