Why I Run
I am walking (not running unless someone is chasing me!) in the Sacramento Undy RunWalk on February 16, 2019 at William Land Park on Team Heidi's Hiney's to raise awareness and support for colon cancer.
I'm walking with my amazing friend Heidi who is a six-year survivor of stage three colon cancer. She fought an incredible fight and continues to win every day!! You rock, Heidi!!!
I am also walking to honor my brother, Jimmy. He battled colon cancer like a warrior from 2009-2015. He fought to be here with his wife and children and share his life with his community. His message, "Live large; Love large" is an inspiration to all who knew him. I miss him every day.
Too many people are suffering with this horrific disease. I am participating in this event to raise awareness for early screening and detection and to raise money to support research to finally eradicate colon cancer.
Please support my involvement in the Undy RunWalk with a tax-deductible donation. Your support will help us prevent colorectal cancer and save lives. For more information on the Undy Run/Walk, please visit Undyrunwalk.org or the Colorectal Cancer Alliance's website at CCAlliance.org.
Thank you for visiting my Undy Run/Walk page!
Survivors...Heidi is in the blue hat.
Wonder Woman Undies! Heidi is our Wonder Woman!!
The Undy RunWalk exceeded our expectations! The rain subsided and we spent a clear morning together celebrating those in our lives who have been effected by colon cancer. Thank you all for your support! Love, Cherie
