Colon Cancer Coalition
The folks behind Colon Cancer Coalition work to raise awareness about colon cancer and eliminate fears about getting screened for the disease. With early-detection and prevention in mind, they organize colon cancer awareness events, including the Get Your Rear In Gear race series. Funds raised through these events directly benefit awareness and screening efforts within local communities.
