Undy 5000 5k run this saturday

    Pull out your favorite pair of boxers and prepare to show them off at this years Undy 5000.

    The 5k (3.1 mile), family-friendly run/walk provided by the Colon Cancer Alliance will take place in Philadelphia Saturday at 9 a.m., right next to the Philadelphia Art Museum on MLK Drive. 

    Not comfortable with impressing people with your flamboyant boxers? Feel free to wear shorts sweat pants or running pants. Some brave souls have worn their boxers on top of their pants, in pervious years. The purpose is to draw attention to the area that is affected by colon cancer.
