The Tour de Tush colon cancer bike ride
The tour is a 25-mile ride starting and ending at Veterans Park in Richfield, MN. This annual fall ’round the river bike tour’ takes you along the west side of the Mississippi River towards downtown Minneapolis, then crossing and back along the St. Paul side of the river. The ride is planned simultaneously with the ‘Get Your Rear in Gear‘ 5K run/walk. Both events are hosted by the Colon Cancer Coalition and money raised helps assist in making screenings available to more for the nation’s no. 2 cancer killer. Plus, the event helps and support patients affected by the disease.

About colon cancer
Also called colorectal cancer, this is one of the most common forms of cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. But no one likes to talk about it. Understanding the disease is important not only for those who have been diagnosed with the disease, but individuals trying to prevent it as well.
Only lung cancer kills more Americans each year than colon cancer, but it doesn’t have to be that way. With early detection and regular screenings, colon cancer is preventable, treatable, and beatable.
