Colon Cancer Alliance - Undy 5000

The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) is a community that provides hope and support to patients and their families, while saving lives through prevention, research and patient support services. Our vision is for a world free of colon cancer, where education, early detection and treatment lead to survivorship for all.

The Undy 5000 is a family-friendly 5K run/walk that was created by the Colon Cancer Alliance. It is unique because participants are encouraged to run in their boxers to bring attention to the area affected by colon cancer. We have found that by getting people talking about this disease, we can save lives!

LoveIAM

The LoveIAm mission is to reach out into our world displaying love, kindness, and compassion for one another.

The LoveIAM charity was created in memory of Liam Ross Murray, who was born on Thursday, January 8th, 2009 with congenital heart defects. Little Liam's parents Ross and Daradee Murray got to spend 26 wonderful days with their beautiful son before he passed on Monday, February 2nd, 2009. Out of the inspiration of strength, courage and love that Liam gave the world, LoveIAM was born.
