You may have a loved one or friend who has suffered from a colon disease or colon cancer. Or, maybe you’ve experienced it yourself. At Franklin Woods Community Hospital, we know there’s a growing need for education on the importance of early colon screening, which can save lives.
March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month; and in an effort to bring awareness to colon health, we’re hosting our first ever Run For Your Buns 5K. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to come join us and learn more about how easy it is to have a colonoscopy. And while you’re here, we’d like to encourage you to visit our free health fair. We’ve invited local health ambassadors to come and provide information about the best diets for your colon and education on probiotics.
Please join us as we run, walk or stroll our way to a healthier colon! Each runner will receive a runner’s bib, boxers and a finisher’s medal. If you are unable to join us, we do offer a “virtual run” option.
Please register early. We will be ordering our boxers by Feb. 21 and we don’t want to leave anyone out.
This is a dog friendly event…
Canine participants are welcome and must be well socialized and on a leash. All dog owners are responsible to clean up after their dogs. Plastic bags will be available at check-in.
Post-race health fair:
There will be a health fair at Franklin Woods Community Hospital outside on the lawn (weather permitting). A variety of vendors will be set up to provide you with health information!
$20 through Dec. 31
$25 starting Jan. 17
Friday, March 3, 4-6:30 p.m., in the lobby of The Wellness Center (200 Med Tech Parkway, Johnson City, TN 37604)
