AMARILLO -- Colon Cancer Awareness brought people to the Amarillo Endoscopy Center Saturday, for their second Colon Cancer Run.
Participants ran to increase awareness about colon cancer prevention, detection, and treatment. The run also included food, music, a medal for 5k runners, and KAMR NBC 4's own Meaghan Collier as emcee for the event.
All proceeds benefit Texas Panhandle locals in need of colon screenings.
"It's all being used locally to donate for colonoscopies for people who are underinsured or uninsured," said Dr. Amit Trehan of the Amarillo Endoscopy Center. "We are going to give it away to them for getting their screenings done for colonoscopies, to prevent colon cancer"
There was also prizes given away to the top three costumed runners.
