Boehringer-Ingelheim helps sponsor Walgreens team for St. Louis colon cancer run

ST. LOUIS — More than 90 runners signed on to join Team Walgreens/Team Tori last month at the 2013 St. Louis Undy 5000 in support of 24-year old Tori Riley. The team raised more than $1,000 in support, half contributed to the Colon Cancer Alliance and the other half to Team Tori, through T-shirt sales, raffles for Walgreens beauty bags and silent auctions that included St. Louis Cardinals tickets, among other items.

"Last year was the first year that [Team Walgreens/Team Tori] participated in the Undy 5000, so this year we wanted to have a greater impact," commented team captain Stefani Cheseldine, an operations trainer for Walgreens. "We are setting a goal for next year to be the biggest team at the St. Louis Undy 5000."

Two days before the Undy 5000 event, Tori's mother announced her daughter had gotten engaged and continues to be upbeat in her fight against colon cancer. For more information on Team Tori, click here.
