HONORARY CHAIR

Meet our 5K Honorary Chairman, Van Vance, the "Voice of the Cards" from 1982-1999!

Vance, who broadcast three Final Four games of the Louisville Cardinals, will help honor survivors at the 5K.

Vance is a pancreatic cancer survivor and long-time friend of Dr. Stan Frager, a colon cancer survivor. Watch this video to hear the two friends talk about helping each other through cancer diagnosis and treatment.

ABOUT THE WALK

THE WALK AWAY FROM COLON CANCER & 5K RUN is an event to raise awareness and funds to eliminate preventable colon cancer by increasing screening rates.

Each year, thousands of American families are affected by this common but little discussed disease.  Colon cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer in both men and women in Kentucky, Indiana, and the whole U.S. despite the fact that it is one of the most preventable forms of cancer.

By participating in the 5K, you and your team join our growing movement to make colon cancer a disease of the past. The Colon Cancer Prevention Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to end preventable colon cancer death and suffering.

Let’s walk, run, and jog for a world without colon cancer.
