The Free Clinic Colon Cancer 5K Run / Walk
March 25 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
This run and walk is for anyone who has been impacted by colon cancer because NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE. Survivors, current battlers, caregivers, family members, friends, coworkers, sisters, husbands, mothers, or anyone who wants to increase access to healthcare and screening sign up to help change the statistics.
Colon Cancer screening is one of the most underused ways to save someone’s life from cancer that exists. Stage one colon cancer has over a 90% survival rate but colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the US. Lack of access to healthcare and early screening measures but 60% of these deaths can be avoided with screening. 76% of uninsured have not had a colon cancer screening and lack access to proper medical care.
