The Endoscopy Center, Inc. and Rapid City Medical Center, LLP will be hosting a 5K Run/Walk for colon cancer awareness on March 11, 2017 in Founders Park. The Bottoms Up 5K aims to increase awareness of colon cancer and to raise funds for early detection and prevention. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society’s “80% by 2018” initiative. While colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. among combined genders, early detection and removal of precancerous polyps saves lives. The goal is to make sure that 80% of all adults over the age of 50 are following screening guidelines.
