Get Your Rear in Gear: Packet pick-up
Wednesday, July 18, 2018
Picking up your race-day packet is easy at Get Your Rear in Gear-Green Bay.
The fourth annual run/walk takes place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4. The family-friendly event offers a fun experience while delivering a serious message.
The event, presented by Aurora BayCare Medical Center, is part of the Minnesota-based Colon Cancer Coalition’s national campaign to raise colon cancer awareness. Registration is open.
On race day, picking up your packet is as simple as looking for the big, clearly-labeled registration tent and allowing the friendly volunteers to assist you. Then enjoy your tech T-shirt and the wealth of items in your goody bag. Packet pick-up also will be available on Wednesday, Aug. 1, from 4 to 6 p.m., at Anduzzi's Sports Club, 900 Kepler Drive, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The run/walk will take participants around the Aurora BayCare Medical Center campus at 2845 Greenbrier Road and through nearby neighborhoods. It will feature a 5-kilometer (3.1-mile) timed race and a 1.5-mile walk. There also will be a kid’s fun run.
The day’s events will include opportunities to celebrate colon cancer survivors and provide support for those family members and caregivers left behind following a loved one’s fight with the disease. There’ll be refreshments and marathon quality medals for age group winners.
Registration is $25 for adults and $15 for ages 12 and under through race day, then $30 for adults and $20 for ages 12 and under on race day. The kids’ fun run is $15.
The Get Your Rear in Gear 5K run/walk is expected to draw more than 350 participants, organizers say.
