BENEFITING: Colon Cancer Coalition Foundation
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2012
I am running the Arizona Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on January 15, 2012 and wanted to do more than just run those 26.2 miles. So I have chosen to run on behalf of the Colon Cancer Coalition. Colon cancer has claimed the lives of two members of my family and nearly claimed the life of my mother.
The Colon Cancer Coalition is a group of sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers and friends who have been affected by colon cancer and want to do something. Some of us are colon cancer survivors while others work to honor those lost to this disease. The Coalition has formed 5K's and other events in cities across the country, working together with health care providers, corporations and the media, to encourage people to "Get Your Rear in Gear" and talk about colon cancer with their doctor, their loved ones and everyone they know. Together, we will positively impact this disease.
