On April 28th, 2012, I will be running the Baton Rouge Get Your Rear In Gear 5K; an event hosted by the Colon Cancer Coalition.
I am running to honor my co-worker Diane Spurlin, my good friend John L. Daniel, Deanna Habetz ~ the matriarch of the Habetz clan of Roberts Cove, (three colon cancer survivors) and to honor the memories of Greg Loney and Reggie Lirette.
Get Your Rear In Gear events are hosted across the country in an effort to generate awareness of colon cancer, raise funds to provide screening to those who can't otherwise afford it, and offer support for those who have been affected by the disease. 75% of the funds I raise will remain right here in the Louisiana.
Please visit my Get Your Rear In Gear page at
and consider making a donation online, by mail, or phone. Every dollar counts.
If you'd like to learn more about Get Your Rear In Gear events, or the disease and prevention, visit the website at www.getyourrearingear.com. Many believe that colon cancer is only a disease of middle-aged men; that is not the case. I hope that you'll help spread awareness and share this link with your loved ones.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
