Thank You – 10th Annual Strides for Life Colon Cancer Foundation/Get Your Rear in Gear Walk-Run-Wheel
Thank you to all of our participants, sponsors and volunteers for making the 10th Annual Strides for Life Colon Cancer Foundation/Get Your Rear in Gear Walk-Run-Wheel a great success! You have helped bring us one step closer to saving lives by allowing us to promote prevention and early detection of this devastating disease. Donations are still coming in, but together we have raised over $70,000.00!
Colorectal cancer is a preventable disease! Please remember to get screened by the age of 50 if you are of average risk and earlier if you have a family history of colon cancer or polyps. Don’t ignore any signs or symptoms you may be experiencing, including blood in your stool, change in bowel function, abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss, or anemia. Colon cancer is still a very treatable disease, especially when caught early.
The Strides for Life Colon Cancer Foundation mission is the prevention and early detection of colon cancer. This mission is accomplished through a variety of educational programs directed at increasing awareness of colon cancer among both healthcare providers and the general population. Included are programs of public education, wide scale screening initiatives and risk reduction strategies directed toward populations at risk.
With your Strides for Life sponsorship or donation, you are guaranteed a place in history, a place in the hearts of people worldwide, and an unparalleled memory secured in the minds of those whose lives are saved because of your partnering efforts with our foundation. You will reach an audience who’s lives are touched by colon cancer in a summer-long promotional campaign via the internet, local media and extensive advertisements in and around the greater San Francisco Bay Area. All contributions to the organization, both large and small, directly support our cause. There are a number of ways you can make a donation.
