Run for Your Buns

Run for Your Buns is an annual 5K run/walk and 10K run benefitting 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.
