Gearing up for March: Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Next week is the beginning of March, and the official start of Colon Cancer Awareness Month. I have some exciting events and speaking engagements in the coming weeks, and look forward to sharing my experiences with you.

To kick off the month, I’ll be a speaker at the Continued Fight Bootcamp on March 3. Fellow speakers include Ben Newman (founder), Aeneas Williams, Scott Underwood and Lieutenant Commander Bob Gassoff. Following this, I’m heading to Miami for the International Women’s Day event by the World Trade Center. I’ll be the guest speaker as they honor prominent business women in Florida.

I urge you to please take time to read more about colon cancer so you can help spread awareness of the disease and the importance of prevention. There are some great resources out there including the Colon Cancer Alliance.

If you are looking for ways to get involved in Colon Cancer Awareness Month, here are a couple of ideas:

  • The CCA Dress in Blue Day is March 6
  • The annual Undy 5000 5k run/walk in St. Louis is Saturday, March 28 at Forest Park. Join the Powerd by Hope team!  Here’s a fun photo from last year’s race:
