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.
In an effort to bring awareness to colon health in our community, we’re hosting the 3rd annual 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! All runners will receive a runner’s bib, choice of boxers or a t-shirt and a finisher’s medal. If you are unable to join us, we do offer a “virtual run” option.
This year you can choose boxers or a t-shirt. Boxers are adult sizes only. T-shirts are youth small through 2xl. Please be aware of this at registration.

Honoring Hailee Jean Conrad
Hailee Jean Conrad was someone who could light up any room with her infectious smile and uplifting personality. At 19 years old, Hailee unexpectedly passed away on December 14th, 2017. Although it was not the cause of her death, she suffered from Ulcerative Colitis for many years. Through her strong faith, Hailee never let this illness hinder her ability to live life to the fullest,and she clearly displayed this courage each and every day. Whether it was singing in the SHHS choir with some of her closest friends, volunteering with her AOII sorority sisters at the University of Kentucky, spending time with her family, or doing gymnastics with girls who were like her sisters, Hailee showed such bravery in everything she did and never let anything stand in her way.
To honor Hailee, we challenge everyone, including those with Ulcerative Colitis and other colorectal illnesses, to Be Brave!
With the help of Hailee’s family, a t-shirt has been designed to encourage others to Be Brave..just as Hailee lived her life.
Ron Renfro was a beloved trainer at The Wellness Center in Johnson City. While battling Colon Cancer, he continued to encourage the staff, his clients and the community with his “can do” attitude. He was and continues to be an inspiration.
This year’s medals are in honor of this champion.
