Run For Your Buns

A person running a race and giving high fives to others.Run for your buns was started nine years ago to create awareness surrounding colon cancer prevention. Colon Cancer is the second most leading cause of cancer death in the United States for men and women and it is a preventable disease. One in twenty adults have a lifetime risk of colon cancer. Early screenings with colonoscopy have a 95-98% success rate of detecting and removing cancer. American Cancer Society guidelines for screening for colorectal cancer have just been updated from 50 years old to 45 to save more lives as studies show rates of colorectal cancer among people younger than 50 are on the rise.
