Get Your Rear in Gear® is an annual fun run event benefiting the Colon Cancer Coalition.  Amy’s college roommate and friend Vanessa Steinkamp identified the organization and worked with the Colon Cancer Coalition to get the first New York-based Get Your Rear in Gear race off the ground in June 2010.  Since then, the New York races have raised over $700,000.  Proceeds from the races have been re-invested in New York City-based organizations that focus on awareness and advocacy, preventative screening,  patient support and research. 

The Colon Cancer Coalition is a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, Minn. dedicated to encouraging screening and raising awareness of colon cancer. The organization’s signature Get Your Rear in Gear® and Tour de Tush™ event series are volunteer-driven in communities throughout the United States. Since 2004, millions of dollars have been granted by the Colon Cancer Coalition to local programs that promote early prevention, screening and patient support services for this disease. By making the words colon, colorectal and colonoscopy a part of the everyday language, the Colon Cancer Coalition helps to overcome fear and decrease deaths from this largely preventable cancer.  For more information visit ColonCancerCoalition.org
