At Colon Screening for Life, Inc., a non-profit 501c(3) organization, the mission is to educate the community on early detection and prevention of colon cancer through regular screenings such as colonoscopies. Each year thousands of American families are affected by this common but little discussed disease. Colon cancer is thought to be the 2nd leading cancer killer in both men and women combined, despite the fact that it is one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Colon Screening for Life, Inc. works to decrease the incidence of colon cancer and related deaths in the Tri-state area by urging individuals to make lifestyle choices that lessen the possibility of developing colon cancer and increasing the number of individuals who seek timely colon cancer screening by providing programs like our 5K Run/Walk that increase awareness about the disease. This year’s Colon Screening for Life 5K will be held at Old National Bank, Downtown Evansville.
