In 2019 we celebrate the 15th annual Get Your Rear in Gear – Twin Cities, the race that started it all. The evolution of the Colon Cancer Coalition has taken us from one race in 2005 to a nationally recognized partner in the fight against colon cancer.
Based in Minneapolis, Minn., we are dedicated to encouraging screening and raising awareness of colorectal cancer. Our signature Get Your Rear in Gear® and Tour de Tush® event series are volunteer-driven in communities throughout the United States. In 2017 alone we granted over $1 million to local community programs that will raise screening rates, increase awareness, and educate the public about the signs and symptoms of this disease.
