The Greater Chattanooga Rump Run 5K Run/Walk for Colon Cancer Awareness, formerly known as Get Your Rear in Gear Chattanooga, will take place on Saturday, at Enterprise South Nature Park in Chattanooga.
Runners, walkers and colon cancer survivors will join forces to raise awareness for the importance of early colon cancer screening, and to provide support for those affected by the nation’s number two cancer killer.
Funds raised will support the Greater Chattanooga Colon Cancer Foundation’s efforts to increase awareness of colorectal cancer, improve access to screenings and offer support to those touched by the disease in the greater Chattanooga region.
