Unable to attend your local event?

You can still make a positive impact on colon cancer in your community as a Virtual Participant.

Participating virtually allows you to:

  Support the cause from your pajamas, the kid’s soccer field, work, or even your vacation!

  Be a part of a team and help them win prizes on event day!

To register as a virtual participant, simply click the “Register and Donate” button on the event page of your choice and register as you would to be a traditional runner or walker or to join a team, but select “Virtual” during the online registration process. Both adult and youth virtual registrations are available.

Virtual Participant FAQs

Answers to the most commonly asked questions about being a virtual participant are provided below. If you don’t see an answer to your question here, contact us directly and we’ll provide the information you need.

What do I get for being a Virtual Participant?

  • A personal fundraising page that allows you to raise money to help with colon cancer education, prevention, and screening efforts in your area.
  • A event t-shirt. (Unfortunately, we can’t mail your shirt, but it can be picked up in person or by a family member or friend at packet pick-up or on race day. If you register as part of a team, your race shirt will be a part of the team’s packet.)
  • Colon cancer survivors registering as a Virtual Participant will also receive a Survivor shirt.
  • If you are part of a team, your registration and fundraising efforts will count toward the Largest Team and Highest Fundraising Team Awards announced on race day.

My schedule changed. Can I still come to the event and participate in the day's activities?

Absolutely! Just come to packet pick-up or race day registration and request a bib number.

Do I have to run, walk, or ride on my own time?

That is up to you. Being active is part of living a healthy lifestyle, something the Colon Cancer Coalition endorses. While we encourage all Virtual Participants to ‘Get Your Rear in Gear’ and lace-up your running or walking shoes or hopping on your bike in honor of your loved ones, it is not required.
