Ken's Colon Cancer Crusaders

Welcome to our team page! I am so proud to say we are now on our 5th year of Ken's Colon Cancer Crusaders! We continue to grow our team each year participating in the Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk as a tribute to Ken Halicki who passed away from colon cancer in May of 2013. This year it takes place on Saturday September 23rd which is Ken's birthday too - making this year all the more special and a perfect way to honor him. 

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States so we want to help fight it! The funds we raise will stay right here in Chicago, helping with prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment for this disease. 

Please support our efforts to build hope, raise awareness, and one day find a cure for colon cancer. Donate to the cause or join our team and come run or walk in the largest colon cancer series event with us!  

You can donate or join our team on this page up to the right------>

Thank you so much for your help and support!
