Colorectal Cancer Walk & Race
Lace Up and Face It!
We asked you to "lace up and face it", and you really did! More than 400 walkers and runners participated in our Colorectal Cancer Walk & Race March 2 and more than $52,000 was raised for Palmetto Health Cancer Centers. Proceeds will be used locally to provide colorectal cancer screenings for eligible individuals. We canít thank you enough for your support!
The Walk & Race is a collaborative effort among dedicated sponsors, teams, individual walkers, contributors, health care professionals, volunteers and of course, colorectal cancer survivors. Thank you!
