About This Event

  • Event Type:Race

Run for Your Buns is an annual 5K and 10K run/walk benefiting colon cancer prevention. Over the course of a lifetime, one in 20 adults will be diagnosed with colon cancer. When detected early, colon cancer is treatable. Colonoscopy is the best line of defense in reducing risk.

Net proceeds from the race are donated to Altru Health Foundation to help uninsured and underinsured patients pay for screening colonoscopies. To date, Run for Your Buns has donated over $40,000 to the Altru Health Foundation Colon Cancer Screening Fund.

Run for Your Buns begins and ends in Lincoln Park in Grand Forks, ND. The course follows the Greater Grand Forks Greenway. Individuals are encouraged to participate in this healthy Saturday morning activity.
