I am collaborating with the March To Get Screened 5K to promote their 2019 event. As compensation, I will receive entries to the race for my personal use and to give away. All opinions are my own.
On March 31st, March To Get Screened will hold its 10th annual 5K run and walk. This year will see a new location, as well as a special new medal, in honor of the anniversary.
Thanks to the continued support of the running community and those who want to bring more awareness to colon cancer and the importance of early screenings, MTGS is now able to offer free colonoscopies in the Jacksonville area, as well as fund more research and education.
Every little bit helps.
I have been fortunate to run this race several times over the years. In 2015, it was the first 5K I ever did with my mom,
and in 2017, it became a family affair.
This year, the race moves from the beach to the river, with a course that starts under the Fuller-Warren Bridge and takes in the beauty of our St. Johns River. It’s going to prove better than ever, and will be even more special because this year is going to be dedicated to both supporters and Survivors!
After the race, stick around for an exciting after-party. MTGS will host scavenger hunts, exciting games and activities, awards, an inflatable colon exhibit, food trucks, beverage garden, and so much more for the runners, walkers, supporters and their families!
There is always an ambiance of hope and love surrounding this event, which is probably what I adore most about it. Even in the face of colon cancer, there are people who are fighting hard, lending support and conquering in the face of all odds. It’s not something to miss.
