Given the growing concerns around COVID-19, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Get Your Rear in Gear – Charlotte scheduled for March 28, 2020. We must prioritize the health and safety of our patients, survivors, caregivers, sponsors, volunteers, employees, and everyone who helps make this event possible. This decision was made after careful consideration of the recommendations surrounding large scale gatherings, and in consultation with the local event committee and health care professionals.
We remain committed to the city of Charlotte, where we’ve hosted Get Your Rear in Gear for over 10 years, and to the colorectal cancer community at large. Every year, we grant the money raised at this event to Novant Health Presbyterian, Atrium Health Foundation, Wind River Cancer Foundation, Chester County Literacy Council, and Care Ring for programs that provide colorectal cancer screening to our community and support patients living with this disease.
Get Your Rear in Gear – Charlotte is an incredibly important event for the Colon Cancer Coalition and it’s our favorite way to celebrate our community in Charlotte. We are committed to returning in 2021. Look for that date to be announced soon.
