Colon Cancer Prevention Project to Host 12th Annual Kicking Butt 5k

The Colon Cancer Prevention Project is proud to announce the 12th annual Kicking Butt 5k – Louisville at Waterfront Park at the Big Four Bridge from 8 to Noon on August 26, 2017. The Kicking Butt 5k – Louisville is held every year to raise awareness and funds for the Colon Cancer Prevention Project. The event consists of both a 5k and one-mile walk. Participants can enjoy the Healthy Village including Kid Zone, food, drinks, and vendors offering other services and information.

“The Kicking Butt 5k is one of the oldest traditions of the Colon Cancer Prevention Project,” said Dave Bell, CEO of the Colon Cancer Prevention Project. “The 5k is a great way to celebrate survivors, raise awareness, and have fun!”

The Kicking Butt 5k - Louisville is one of the biggest events hosted by the Colon Cancer Prevention Project. Last year’s 5k raised more than $110,000 and had more than 1,200 people in attendance. We know that this year we can do even more to help put an end to preventable colon cancer. Join us on August 26, 2017 for a morning of health, camaraderie, and kicking butt!

This event will support the Colon Cancer Prevention Project’s mission of eliminating preventable colon cancer death and suffering by making sure people get timely screenings. This mission is accomplished through education, advocacy, health systems improvement, and survivor support. The Project began kicking butt in Louisville, KY in 2004 and our work has grown to reach throughout the region. The Project actively works in the community to accomplish its mission by educating, empowering and putting prevention into practice.

Registration is available through KickingButt.org.  For more information or interview request, contact Ashley Olson, Development and Program Manager for the Colon Cancer Prevention Project, at 502.290.0288 or [email protected]
