2018 Run For Your Buns 5K - Colon Health Awareness

More About 2018 Run For Your Buns 5K - Colon Health Awareness

You may have a loved one or friend who has suffered from a colon disease or colon cancer. Or, maybe you’ve experienced it yourself. At Franklin Woods Community Hospital, we know there’s a growing need for education on the importance of early colon screening, which can save lives.

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month; and in an effort to bring awareness to colon health, we’re hosting Run For Your Buns 5K. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to come join us and learn more about how easy it is to have a colonoscopy. And while you’re here, we’d like to encourage you to visit our free health fair. We’ve invited local health ambassadors to come and provide information about the best diets for your colon and education on probiotics.

Please join us as we run, walk or stroll our way to a healthier colon! Each runner will receive a runner’s bib, boxers and a finisher’s medal. If you are unable to join us, we do offer a “virtual run” option.

Please register early for GUARANTEED boxers. We will be ordering our boxers by Feb. 19 and we don’t want to leave anyone out.
