Local Event Director Bryan Fessler recently presented a check to CEO Jim Hayes from funds raised during the 2014 race. Through this grant, UnityPoint Health-Trinity Muscatine can continue to offer assistance for colon cancer screenings to those who are under-insured in Muscatine.
As is so often the case, the financial burden of a colon cancer screening can be the biggest obstacle. But with funds raised through Get Your Rear in Gear, communities can see a direct impact with grants like this given by the Colon Cancer Coalition.
Congratulations to UnityPoint-Trinity Muscatine, and thank you for doing your part to help the fight against colon cancer in Muscatine.
The 2015 Get Your Rear in Gear 5K Run/Walk will be held at Discovery Park on September 19th. Registration is now open, so sign up and help continue the efforts to raise awareness and support for colon cancer prevention in Muscatine.
