Colon Cancer Prevention Project to host 14th Kicking Butt 5k on August 24 at Louisville’s Waterfront Park


The Colon Cancer Prevention Project will host the 14th Annual Kicking Butt 5k at Waterfront Park. The Kicking Butt 5k is an inspiring event, bringing together survivors, family and friends of survivors, and other community members around a common cause – a world without colon cancer.

The 2019 Kicking Butt 5k will feature a Healthy Village with local partner booths, face painting and a bounce house for the kids, and more! Participants have options to walk/run/stroll the full 5k distance or the one-mile distance. Registration is $30, though there is team pricing available and kids under 10 race for free! Registration includes a shirt and bib. Medals for both overall speed and age groups will be presented. Registration can be found at runsignup.com.

The Colon Cancer Prevention Project works to make colon cancer a disease of the past through education, advocacy, health systems improvement, and survivor support. Kentucky has become a model state for screening rates – something to be proud of. The Colon Cancer Prevention Project is committed to saving lives across the region through continued education and encouraging people to be screened on time – by age 45! We hope you’ll join us on August 24th as we walk, stroll, run, and roll to a world without colon cancer.
