About This Activity

The Full Moon 5k for Colon Cancer was founded by Shane and Breann Angelovich in honor of Sindy Angelovich, who was diagnosed in December of 2011 at the age of 48.

Our mission is to raise awareness and encourage people to get checked even before the recommended age of 50 (especially if you have a family history!). This disease is one of the mot PREVENTABLE, TREATABLE, and BEATABLE. The CDC found that 60% of colon cancer cases would've been prevented if the person got checked.

We are partnering with the Longmont United Hospital Foundation as a 501(c)3 (so your donations are tax deductible!). The funds raised so far has made possible the first ever Colon Cancer Support group in Northern Colorado!

Thanks for making this race a success! Without you there is no race!
