The first annual Asheville Gastro Colon Cancer Awareness 5k will be held on Saturday March 27, 2010 at 8:00 AM. Start and finish will be at the Asheville Gastro office at 191 Biltmore Avenue in Asheville.
AGA is pleased to announce our first annual 5K Walk/Run to promote Colon Cancer Awareness on March 27th. Colon Cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death, with 1 in 19 Americans developing the disease during ones lifetime. We are proud to send all proceeds from the event to the Mission Healthcare Foundation which will help fund the Mission Comprehensive Cancer Care Facility to bring state of the art outpatient cancer treatment to Western North Carolina.
