Join us on Saturday, March 24 at Carrier Park for the “Get Your Rear in Gear” 5K! The proceeds from the run support the WNC Colon Cancer Screening Initiative to provide colon cancer screening for uninsured and underinsured residents of western North Carolina. It’s a great way to honor someone special who is fighting colon cancer and to remember loved ones who lost their fight. Form a team and get your friends, family, and co-workers to join you!
