CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Walking through a giant inflatable colon with 3-dimensional healthy and unhealthy tissue examples is a helpful way to learn more about colorectal health. That's why the Cleveland Clinic is bringing this huge inflatable colon to the 2016 Cleveland Undy Run/Walk at the Cleveland East Bank in the Flats.

Fox 8's morning show anchor team walked through the colorful learning tool with Dr. Matthew Kalady, head of colorectal surgery at Cleveland Clinic Hospitals. We also met an Undy Run participant who knows first hand the importance of early detection.
