Colon Cancer is preventable and treatable with timely screening. The Colon Cancer Coalition will use the funds raised at the 5K to build colon cancer screening, awareness, and patient support programs in the Baton Rouge area.
The "Get Your Rear in Gear 5K" is a family-friendly event that includes a kids' fun run. Organizers say kids will also be able to walk through an inflatable colon.
