Race Description

The fourth annual KMC Strollin’ for the Colon 5K Run/Walk event is taking place Saturday, May 7, 2022.

During this unique event, participants will begin and finish the race through our GIANT SUPER INFLATABLE COLON TUNNEL. The super colon is a giant, 10-feet wide by 13-feet tall by 20-feet long, inflatable tunnel that gives people an interactive look at the human colon.

This event aims to raise awareness about colorectal cancer and the importance of colon cancer screenings, especially to those who have delayed their care due to COVID-19.
