Survivors at the 2015 Kicking Butt 5K in Louisville, Ky.


We are planning a 5k and we need your help!

The Kicking Butt 5K is an event to raise awareness and funds to eliminate preventable colon cancer by increasing screening rates.

We would need help with the process of planning and coordinating the 12th annual Kicking Butt 5k. The planning committee meets ones a month, though more frequently in the weeks leading up to the event.

Each year, thousands of families are affected by this common but little-discussed disease. Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer in both men and women in Kentucky, Indiana, and the whole U.S. despite the fact that it is one of the most preventable forms of cancer.

By participating in the 5K, you join our growing movement to make colon cancer a disease of the past. The Colon Cancer Prevention Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to end preventable colon cancer death and suffering.

Let’s walk, run, and jog for a world without colon cancer.
