Every Dollar Counts. Pennies Too.
When your fundraising efforts are combined with the efforts of others, the sum of the parts really is greater than the whole. The money that you raise to support your local Get Your Rear in Gear® or Tour de Tush® event stays in the community where it is raised to help increase screening rates for colon cancer. This commitment to the local community is one thing that sets us apart from other organizations.
