First as Snuggie Pub Crawl, now a run in your undergarments to support The Colon Cancer Alliance! Have to admit, people are being clever in these uncertain economic times. So the question is… Which will chafe less on a 5k run? Boxers or Briefs?

From Fleet Feet:

Yep, you read it right. 5000 meters in your favorite undergarment!

The Colon Cancer Alliance’s (CCA) 1st Annual St. Louis Undy 5000 event will take place on Saturday, March 28th, 2009. This “brief” 5K run/walk is designed to raise awareness and funds for the fight against colorectal cancer. Because runners and walkers will be wearing anything from their favorite running shorts to their wildest pair of boxers, this event is sure to get people talking.

The Undy 5000 begins at 9AM and will be held at Forest Park at the Upper Muny parking lot. All Undy 5000 participants will receive a commemorative pair of boxers (while supplies last). The Gateway CCA Chapter will kick off the opening ceremony, set to begin around 8:45AM.

Awards will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers, as well as to the top three males and females in the following age groups: 10 & under, 11 to 19, 20 to 29, 30 to 39, 40 to 49, 50 to 59, 60 to 69, 70 & over.

You can register for the event online by visiting the Undy 5000 website. You can also register during packet pickup, which will be held on Friday, March 27th, at FLEET FEET Sports in Chesterfield, from 10AM-8PM. There will also be race day registration and packet pickup.

This important but fun event will be held in different cities across the country throughout the year to educate the public about colon cancer, promote screenings, and get people talking about this deadly, but preventable disease. The Undy 5000 will raise much-needed funds to support and build CCA’s innovative screening and awareness programs.

To register or to learn more about the Undy 5000 and colon cancer, visit www.undy5000.org   You may also reply to this email or contact Eric Doherty at (636) 328-5984.

When people think about energy, they often think about the negatives such as high gas prices, environmental challenges and national security issues. However, many communities are seeing that there are ways to capitalize on economic opportunities related to energy. What challenges does the St. Louis region face in pursuing these opportunities? What strategies seem to offer the best paths to success?

Join Metropolis St. Louis and Focus St. Louis as we come together to discuss our community’s priorities and concerns around the issue of energy-related economic development. Your input will be used in developing Southern Growth’s 2009 Report. In addition, we hope suggestions at this forum will stimulate further action in the region on environmental sustainability.

This forum is complimentary. Register at www.mstl.org . Parking is available in the 9th Street Garage. For more information contact leadership@ mstl.org.
