Tragically colorectal cancer is on the rise in young adults in their 20’s and 30’s. Founder Carleen has been an advocate for colorectal patients and families since 2004 when her dear friend passed away at age 45. Very sadly Carleen’s own son was diagnosed at the age of 22 Feb 2016 with colorectal cancer. He passed away September 2, 2016 as he was fighting CRC. This cancer has to be stopped so more families do not suffer. So how will you dress your derriere for the dash to raise awareness about CRC? Many young people are misdiagnosed. It is vital for the community to know this cancer is not an old person’s disease. Connor was getting ready to start his Masters in Public Health to help others. This race continues in his memory. It is a day to remember lives lost, to bring hope to those still fighting, and to take action against this cancer. There will be info tables, mascots, silent auction, raffle. There will be awards for the best dressed derriere. Awards for the fastest overall female and male. Medals and gift cards for age group winners. There will be an after party at Yabo’s in Upper Arlington. So join us and don’t get left behind as we dash to save lives. And we are always looking for help, ideas, volunteers in planning and race day organization. If able to help please contact Carleen at therace4hope@gmail.com
