Seattle-based BadCreditLoans.com sponsors Get Your Rear In Gear, a 5K on November 4, 2012 to generate greater awareness of colon cancer and provide screenings to those who might otherwise be unable to afford them.
Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2012 -- BadCreditLoans.com, a leading installment loans website, announced today they would sponsor the Colon Cancer Coalition’s Get Your Rear in Gear - Seattle, a 5K run/walk on November 4, 2012, to generate greater awareness of colon cancer and provide screenings to those who might otherwise be unable to afford them.
“Our hope is that this support will increase awareness of colon cancer in the local community, encourage individuals of all ages to get screened, and inspire others to support their local cancer prevention organization,” says BadCreditLoans.com spokesperson Matt Becker. There are many companies focused on the early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer, such as Exact Sciences Corporation (NASDAQ:EXAS), Genomic Health, Inc (NASDAQ:GHDX), Prevent Cancer Foundation, and Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ:MYGN).
Colon and rectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States and the leading cause of cancer deaths among non-smokers.
“There are numerous ways individuals can get involved to make a difference in the fight against cancer. Whether it’s volunteering to give a cancer patient a ride to chemotherapy, making a donation, or getting involved with local events in your community,” added Matt Becker.
With nearly 40 nationwide races, the Colon Cancer Coalition has become a leading source for colon cancer education and awareness. They are working together with health care providers, corporations and the media, to encourage people to "Get Your Rear in Gear" and talk about colon cancer with their doctor, their loved ones and everyone they know.
Get Your Rear in Gear is bigger then just a message for colon cancer; it is a message for all of us to take action, lead longer healthier lives, go to the doctor regularly, to listen to our bodies when something isn’t right and to get the right answers, regardless of age.
The race takes place in Marymoor Park. For more information, visit http://getyourrearingear.com/Seattle
“Giving back to the local community has always been a big part of our companies mission,” says Matt Becker. “We make a conscious effort to consistently support charitable causes and nonprofit organizations.” Recently, BadCreditLoans.com also sponsored Lungevity’s Breathe Deep Seattle, One World Roller Derby, and Ginger’s Pet Rescue.

About the Colon Cancer Coalition / Get Your Rear in Gear
Get Your Rear in Gear events are presented nationally by the Colon Cancer Coalition, a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis. The events are 100% volunteer-driven in communities throughout the United States. To date the Colon Cancer Coalition has distributed nearly $1.5 million from the Get Your Rear in Gear events back into local communities for colon cancer education, prevention, and screening. By making the words colon, colorectal and colonoscopy a part of the everyday language, we believe we can overcome the fear and decrease deaths from this largely preventable cancer.
