To join the Fox Chase Cancer Center team at Get Your Rear in Gear website, register online. Donations also are accepted from faculty and staff who cannot attend but would like to support the cause as a virtual racer.

Presented by the Colon Cancer Coalition, the event will raise colon cancer awareness and funds to support local efforts, including prevention, early detection, and treatment for this disease.

Please note: Fees are non-refundable and race bibs are non-transferable.  Only participants who pre-register by March 1 are guaranteed a race shirt.  Race shirts for day of registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

As with many major events scheduled within this challenging time of escalating concerns around COVID 19, Get Your Rear in Gear Philadelphia  postponed the 12th annual colon cancer awareness event from Sunday, March 22, 2020, to Sunday, July 19, 2020. 

This move was made in collaboration with our expert medical partners to help ensure the safety and well-being of our participants.  It is a strategic choice to preserve the event and move it to the first available date on the calendar of the City of Philadelphia. 

All funds raised thus far from registrations, donations and sponsorships will be transferred to the rescheduled date of July 19 for our 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run. We sincerely hope you will be able to join us. Thank you for your support, patience and understanding.
