Rick's Weeeoo Walkers


After Rick passed away on November 11th, 2008, his closest friends and family decided to bring the Get Your Rear in Gear 5K for Colon Cancer Event to Tinley Park as a way of honoring his memory. This year is our 9th Annual, and the success of the event has been overwhelming!  The event includes a 5K Timed Run, a 5K Walk and a Kid's Fun Run.

Please consider joining our team or supporting us with a donation to Rick's Weeeoo Walkers.

The Colon Cancer Coalition sponsors Get Your Rear in Gear events across the country to raise funds to increase awareness and screenings for colon cancer. The reason this is so important is simple...

90% will survive if diagnosed in the early stages.  90% will die if not diagnosed until the late stages!

Please consider supporting us in one of the following ways...

*  Make a donation in honor of Rick on this web page

*  Become a member of Rick's team,

*  Form a team of your own.

*  Spread the word...It's critical to the success of the even!

Thanks for your support in this effort to honor Rick in a way that can make such a difference in the lives of others!
