This week’s blog is about why we have chosen to raise awareness about colorectal screening & prevention. Simply put – colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the second most common cause of death from cancer for both Canadian men and women. This should not be the case. Colorectal cancer can be detected early and is even preventable in 90% of cases. But almost half of those diagnosed find out too late. Your friendly organizers of the @biokplus Bum Run want to encourage as many people as we can to talk to their physicians and learn about how to screen for and prevent colorectal cancer. We can beat this thing together. Join us on August 25th to raise funds for Colon Cancer Canada, raise awareness of screening & prevention, and honour our friends and family affected by colorectal cancer. Join us. Run. Walk. Love your bum.
Welcome back to our 2nd year of bum blogging. That’s right – we are only two months away from the second annual Bio-K+ Bum Run and here’s what you need to know. Last year, we raised $50,000 for Colon Cancer Canada to help bring awareness about colorectal cancer screening and prevention. We hope to do it all over again this year. So let’s start this blog like we did last year – with the basics of your bum. As we shouted to the world last year – bums and runs are a symbiotic partnership. You can’t run without a bum. Your bum muscles connect to your femur, which basically stops you from falling on your face when you run. So join us in thanking our bums for the gift of the run on Sunday, August 25, 2013 and remind your bottom of its evolutionary beginning!
