Colon Screening for Life


Want to Form a Team?

We love teams! Colon cancer awareness is finally starting to gain national prominence and your involvement means there is one more organization in the fight against colon cancer. Each year, thousands of American families are affected by this common but little discussed disease.

By participating in the 5K, your organization and team join our growing movement to make colon cancer a disease of the past. Colon Screening for Life is a nonprofit on a mission to end preventable colon cancer death and suffering. Let’s walk, run, and jog for a world without colon cancer!
