About the Event
As you know, March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month – a time set aside to help raise awareness about colorectal cancer and the importance of early detection.
For the past eight years, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, Lake Cumberland Surgery Center, and several other healthcare/business partners have sponsored a 5K walk/run. Proceeds from this event will go to Lake Cumberland Friends for the purpose of providing financial assistance for uninsured/underinsured individuals who need screening for colorectal cancer.
Community response for this event has been very gratifying over the years. Last year, nearly 150 individuals participated in the 5K, raising $7,625 for Lake Cumberland Friends, a 501 C-3 organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to local individuals.
The Eighth Annual "Raising Awareness Saving Lives" 5K Walk/Run will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2016. Registration will begin at 7:15 a.m. and the race will begin at 8:30 a.m. We are looking forward to another fun-filled day including an informational fair, refreshments and door prizes.
Entry fee will be $20 per person in advance or $25 on the day of the event. Pre-registration must be received by March 14th to be guaranteed a T-shirt. Proceeds from the event will go to Lake Cumberland Friends for the purpose of assisting patients for colorectal cancer screening.
