9th Annual ~ Get Your Rear in Gear

Thank You!

Thank you to all of our participants, sponsors and volunteers for making the 9th Annual Strides for Life Colon Cancer Foundation/Get Your Rear in Gear Walk-Run-Wheel the best yet!  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 so far we have raised over $95,000.00!

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.
