Help us kick colorectal cancer's butt at the Portland Walk to End Colon Cancer! Previously called the Undy RunWalk, the Walk to End Colon Cancer is a fundraising event for the programs of the Colorectal Cancer Alliance to screen, care, and cure colorectal cancer. All of the funds raised will go toward the Care During COVID-19 Fund, set up to provide extra assistance to CRC patients and caregivers in this difficult time.
We are shifting the Portland Walk to End Colon Cancer to be a hybrid event. We will not gather as planned in a large group for the event, but instead we will encourage people to register, fundraise, and walk in their community on the day of the Walk. In addition, we are asking participants to close out their walk experience with a fun on-site activation. We ask that they drive by in their decorated car to pick-up their participant goody bag. A small number of volunteers will be on-hand to cheer them on and thank them for their participation.
We can only have a small number of volunteers in person, but we need more volunteers to help virtually! You can help by promoting the event on your social media, registering (for free) and fundraising, sharing the event in your community, making signs for the drive-by victory lap, and helping to plan virtual get-togethers with others in the CRC community, but we're open to more volunteer ideas!
Volunteer for this event in new ways and help us make this an awesome event to END colorectal cancer!

Colorectal cancer is a potentially fatal disease that is mostly preventable. The Colorectal Cancer Alliance raises awareness of preventive measures; provides support for patients, caregivers, and survivors; and inspires the efforts that fund critical research--all to end colorectal cancer in our lifetime. We continue to have aggressive, and important, goals. To date, more than 800,000 people have turned to the Alliance. Won’t you join us?
We serve as allies to everyone touched by the disease, with a national network of survivors and advocates at the ready to help others navigate their cancer journey. Having walked in your shoes, our helpline staff can share experiences and identify the right resources for wherever you are on that journey.
