Colon Cancer Screening

Colon Cancer Coalition works to increase screening rates for colorectal cancer across the United States.

The Colon Cancer Coalition / Get Your Rear in Gear focuses on raising screening rates for colon cancer across the country providing support to the patients and caregivers affected by this disease. By partnering with organizations in each of the cities where we host events, we look to educate the public about the signs and symptoms of colon cancer, encouraging those 50 or older to be screened for this preventable and treatable disease and also encouraging younger people to be aware of the signs and symptoms. Empowering young people with information so they can be advocates for themselves and their loved ones when talking to doctors and other medical professionals.

The organisation was incorporated as a 501C3 non-profit in Minnesota in 2006, but truely becan in 2004 when a small committee began planning the inagural Get Your Rear in Gear - Twin Cities 5K.  Recognizing that many others had a similar desire to create awareness events for colon cancer - and specifically run/walk events - the Coalition decided to expand its vision to help create Get Your Rear in Gear branded events in all 50 United States.

Since this time,  the Coalition has created a network of affiliate events.  We offer those committed to creating awareness in their community a proven blueprint for success, saving organizers time, money and energy to invest in the success of their local event.  As our network of events grows, we have the opportunity to share ideas, strategies, marketing tools and buying power amongst our event leaders, sponsors, volunteers and participants.

By joining forces with other like-minded advocates throughout the United States,  we believe we can dramatically impact colorectal cancer by througe education and screening.  By making the words colon, colorectal and colonoscopy every day language, we can help overcome fear and decrease deaths from this largely preventable cancer.  Contact us to learn how to become part of our movement.
