As the title says, and as the goal of 365 Twin Cities is for everyone to get off of their phone or computer and “Get Your Rear In Gear” and enjoy all that the Twin Cities has to offer. With this one, you can take it literally since this is a 5K for Colon Cancer.
The whole idea behind the annual Get Your Rear In Gear walk/run is to raise awareness for colon cancer and challenge everyone to get screened. This year on October 11, 2015 the race will be held at the Mall of America.
The Colon Cancer Coalition presents 11th Annual Get Your Rear in Gear 5K for colon cancer. The race is based at the Mall of America.
Register for the Twin Cities Get Your Rear in Gear® 5K Run/Walk to help raise funds for colon cancer awareness efforts in the Twin Cities area. Monies raised will stay in our community, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment, and healthy living projects for this disease. The event includes refreshments, tech shirts and marathon quality medals for age group winners. Get Your Rear in Gear provides a special opportunity to honor survivors and those lost to colon cancer in our community.
