MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Colon Cancer is the second leading cancer that causes death in the nation.
The Undy 5K wants to support those who have it and let people know about the cancer so they can get screened for it.
Much like other cancers, finding it early can help treatment.
Beverly Stanley from Coliseum Health Systems in Macon joins 41NBC to talk about it.
She says the run is a fun way to let people know about a cancer that may not be talked about as much as others.
There will be tons of runners.
The Undy 5K for Colon cancer is Saturday, March 5th at Wesleyan College in Macon, and it starts at 9 a.m.
There will be children’s activities, best costume prizes and a survivor ceremony.
Event parking is accessed from Wesleyan’s second entrance on Tucker Road, coming from Forsyth Road.
It’s the large parking area behind Wesleyan’s Porter Auditorium. Signs and balloons mark the entrance.
Please note: Wesleyan’s front entrances will be blocked for the race route.
