2016 march to get screened 5k run/walk event giveaway

This is a sponsored post. March To Get Screened has provided me with two complimentary entries to give away, as well as two for my own use, in exchange for promoting their event in advance and reviewing it upon completion. All opinions are my own.

In a few weeks, the Jacksonville Fishing Pier will play host to the seventh annual March to Get Screened 5K Walk/Run event.

I have had the honor of being a part of the event for the past two years, and I am hoping that I can be on hand this time as well.

Founded in 2004 by survivor Jan Pratt, the March To Get Screened 5K is an event to raise awareness of colon cancer and the importance of regular screenings for early detection and prevention. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States; a routine colonoscopy can prevent colon cancer from even starting.

Come out on Sunday, March 6 for a beautiful morning full of inspiration and education. The  5K  is runner and walker friends, and will start at the Jacksonville Beach Fishing Pier. The course will start at 9:o0 AM and is a gorgeous out and back on the sands of Jacksonville Beach.

After the event, enjoy food and drinks provided by Lynch’s Irish Pub and live music by Darren Corlew at the March to Get Screened after party.

  4. This sounds like a great event–but the screening is still a colonoscopy and that’s a tough sell! I hope people will get it done.

    This 5K is near and dear to my heart. My grandmother died from colon cancer and even though I feel all cancers are horrible, colon cancer is the worst to me because I saw first hand how it robbed it robbed my grandmother of her life. I am most definitely looking forward to this race! 🙂
