Support Get Your Rear in Gear virtually
Monday, July 18, 2016
Can’t make it to the second annual Get Your Rear in Gear 5K as a runner, walker or a volunteer? No problem. You can still support the event as a virtual participant.
Get Your Rear in Gear-Green Bay presented by Aurora BayCare Medical Center is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6. It’s part of the Colon Cancer Coalition’s national campaign to raise awareness of colon cancer and the importance of preventive screenings and early detection.
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 5K (3.1-mile) timed race and a 1.5-mile walk. There also will be a kids’ 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. Aurora BayCare Medical Center is the event’s presenting sponsor.
People who are unable to participate physically can join the event virtually. To register as a virtual participant, simply click the “Register and Donate” button on the event page and register as you would as a traditional runner or walker but select “Virtual” during the online registration process. Both adult and youth virtual registrations are available.
What do you get for being a virtual participant? You’ll get:
- A personal fundraising page that allows you to raise money to help with colon cancer education, prevention, and screening efforts in your area.
- A 2015 event T-shirt. (Unfortunately, we can’t mail your shirt, but it can be picked up in person or by a family member or friend at packet pick-up or on race day. If you register as part of a team, your race shirt will be a part of the team’s packet).
- A survivor shirt if you are a colon cancer survivor registering as a virtual participant.
Registration is $25 for adults and $15 for ages 12 and under through August 3, then $30 for adults and $20 for ages 12 and under from August 4 to race day. The kids’ fun run is $15.
