Get Your Rear in Gear: Share your experience
Monday, August 8, 2016
Thank you for your support of the second annual Get Your Rear in Gear-Green Bay presented by Aurora BayCare Medical Center. Now we’d like to know about your race-day experience.
You’ll soon receive an email from Get Your Rear in Gear containing a link to a short survey that will ask questions about the race, your thoughts on how things went and any suggestions for improvements. In case you miss or don’t immediately receive the email, here’s a link to the survey.
“Our goal is to continue to offer you a great 5K run/walk experience while also helping to raise colon cancer awareness,” race director Mike Schmidt said. “Your feedback is vital to our ongoing efforts, especially since it’s a growing race. We’re looking for feedback about the event, set-up, date, course and more.”
The annual run/walk is an effort to raise awareness of colon cancer and better educate the public about the importance of appropriate screenings and early detection. The race, which offers a timed 5K (3.1-mile) run and a 1.5-mile walk, is a program of the Minneapolis-based Colon Cancer Coalition. The group promotes national awareness of colon cancer and encourages increased use of screenings.
Aurora BayCare Medical Center is the Green Bay event’s presenting sponsor.
The 2016 road race drew about 200 registrants.
