Mission Statement

Empower local communities to promote prevention and early detection of colon cancer and to provide support to those affected.


We invite you to Get Your Rear in Gear and bring understanding, raise awareness, and eliminate the fear of colon cancer. Our grassroots efforts to drive early intervention and detection of colon cancer on a national level are collaborative at heart; we know change comes as we partner with others to connect people to resources that help them live strong and healthy lives.

Because colon cancer is so treatable, we encourage people not to run from screening with Get Your Rear in Gear(r) run/walk and Tour de Tush(r) bike rides in communities across America.

Money raised through our events are granted back to the community as we build and fund programs aimed at increasing colon cancer screening and early detection of the disease. What started as one women’s reaction to the loss of her sister to this largely preventable disease, has become a nationwide movement. By championing education, awareness and early screening of colon cancer, we hope to prevent many other lives from being cut short by this misunderstood disease.

As a proud member of the National Colorectal Cancer Round Table we were proud to be one of the first organizations to sign the 80% by 2018 pledge. The goal? To raise the national colorectal cancer screening rate to 80% by the year 2018 and save hundreds of thousands of lives in the process.
