The Undy 500

2nd Annual Undy Ride Event

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

MGI - Undy Ride Ad (1)

We are co-hosting our 2nd annual event UNDY 500 on Sat, March 25 with our friends at Classic Harley Davidson to raise awareness for this significant and preventable disease.   

Come join us at Classic Harley for this free event, bring your favorite wheels (bicycle, motorcycle, scooter, skateboard, rollerblades, unicycle, wheelchair, feet), grab your free pair of commemorative Undy Ride undies (boxers), and ride/walk our 500m obstacle course on site at Classic Harley, wearing your gifted boxers (or your own skiivies!) in solidarity for all those who are survivors or victims of this disease. Free at-home stool kits will be given away to those who have never been screened to test yourself at home.  For those who have never been screened and own a motorcycle, get a free oil change for your bike if you follow through and get your first colonoscopy in 2023.  There will be food for purchase from JR’s Briskets food truck and we will gladly accept any donations for colorectal cancer research. 

Fun for the whole family!

Join us for some belly-busting laughs and butt kicking challenges and together we can fight this terrible disease and lower its incidence in our community.  Come out and clean your pipes with us and let’s kick this disease in the butt!  See you there!!

Why this event matters:

The dangers, preventions, and treatment of colorectal cancer are not widely known or discussed because colon cancer affects a part of the body that people often find embarrassing and are ashamed of talking about.  Meanwhile colorectal cancer is the 2nd most common cause of cancer death in men and women in the US, affects approximately 150K people a year, 1/3 of which will die of the disease.   This is because 1 in 3 Americans, even those with insurance, are NOT screened when recommended. It is a leading cause of cancer death in young men and women between the ages of 20 and 49!  Colon cancer is beatable in 90% of cases when detected early, and with appropriate screening, and is often entirely preventable.
