March 2013 SCOPE FOR HOPE Run against COLON CANCER







“Dear Runners,

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first two Colorectal Cancer runs! With your help $53,000 has been raised, and those funds have been used to provide colonoscopies, biopsies, treatments and financial assistance for 123 colorectal cancer patients in need in Southwest Florida.

The colorectal cancer event’s new name is Scope for Hope, with fully 100% of proceeds staying right here in Southwest Florida. The 5K run, 2-mile walk, and kids’ fun run will be held on March 23, 2013 at Hammond Stadium. Under the direction of Dr. Janette Gaw and Vera Owens, the event has been growing every year and we expect this year’s to be the biggest ever. As always, door prizes, chance drawings, entertainment, and other surprises will add to the fun. We have some wonderful prizes this year, including a cruise! You can order your chance drawing tickets or at the event.

Remember, colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the country. Colorectal cancer is preventable. Colorectal cancer is treatable. We hope to see you there to help raise funds for colorectal cancer patients in Southwest Florida!
