Why the "Get Your Rear in Gear" event is so important to us...
Friends & Family, once again, I'm participating in the Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk in Tinley Park, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. Our team, the "RumpRunners" will walk, run, skip, whatever it takes to help create awareness and raise funds for this critical fight against colon cancer. The first time I registered for this event, it was simply a 5k for a good cause. The next year, one of my sisters was diagnosed--and thankfully, she beat it. Two years later, another sister of mine was diagnosed, and she, too, kicked cancer's butt. Not everyone is as lucky, determined, stubborn--whatever--and so it is with renewed passion and commitment that we're encouraging all of our family and friends to participate however they see fit. Please consider joining us for the event, or if that's not a possibility, supporting the team or individual participant with a financial donation. The funds we raise will stay right in the Tinley Park community, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease.
Please support our efforts to build hope and beat colon cancer! Thank you in advance for your help.
