‘Get Your Rear in Gear’

A large group of runners and walkers participated in the second annual “Get Your Rear in Gear” 5K race in Ladd Saturday. Organizer Kathy Martin wasn’t sure just how many people participated in the fundraiser for the Colon Cancer Coalition but said they had run out of the 400 T-shirts they ordered more than 45 minutes before the event began. Martin said the event is designed to raise funds for colorectal cancer — the second leading cancer killer in the United States — and encourage people to take change of their own health. “Have some fun, take care, God bless, and ‘Get Your Rear in Gear!’” Martin encouraged the runners before Village President Mike Grivetti fired the starting pistol.
