On Saturday, September 14, over 1,000 runners, walkers, volunteers, colorectal cancer survivors, and caregivers will join together in the fight against the nation’s second leading cancer killer: colon cancer.

Get Your Rear in Gear® − Boston is a family-friendly 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ Fun Run planned to raise awareness and encourage screening for this largely preventable cancer.

The 5K route starts and ends at DCR Mother’s Rest at Carson Beach.

Celebrate survivors, support caregivers, and remember those who left us too soon.

Visit the giant inflatable colon to see what your doctor sees during a colonoscopy – view a healthy colon wall, then see how a polyp progresses from benign into stage IV colorectal cancer.

Stroll the Blue Mile and see tributes to those lost and messages honoring survivors of colon and rectal cancer.
