We empower you to Get Your Rear in Gear by bringing understanding, raising awareness, and eliminating fear of colon cancer. Our grassroots campaign to drive early intervention and detection of colon cancer on a national level is collaborative at heart; we know change comes as we partner with others to connect people to resources that help them live strong and healthy lives. 

Because colon cancer is so treatable, we encourage people not to run from screening with Get Your Rear in Gear 5K Run/Walk events in communities across America.

Funds raised by our events go back into the local communities hosting them to support programs important to them. What started as one women’s reaction to the loss of her sister to this largely preventable disease, has become a nationwide movement. By championing education, awareness and early screening of colon cancer, we hope to prevent many other lives from being cut short by this misunderstood disease.


Empower local communities to promote prevention and early detection of colon cancer and to provide support to those affected.


To establish a colon cancer event and/or align with an existing event in every state to help raise awareness and funds in order to adequately fund colon cancer activities.
