Team Live Moore
Dust off your running shoes 👟 and join Team Live Moore in honor of Matt Moore at Get Your Rear in Gear 5k run/walk on Sunday, February 23rd in Tucson, Arizona at OMNI Tucson National Resort 🏃♀️🏃🏿♂️
Matt Moore spent 16 months fighting colon cancer and now it's our turn!!!
Why is this event important?
Well, education about colon cancer is SUPER important! We are in this crazy time in our life where more and more people in their 20's and 30's are getting diagnosed with colon cancer. In fact 1-20 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer in their life time and 1-10 off those diagnosed will be under 50 years old. The more people know about colon cancer the more likely they will be to seek medical support if they are experiencing colon cancer symptoms. AND the earlier colon cancer is detected the higher the rates of survival are!!! So...saving lives is super important!
So...we joined Team Live Moore! YAY!!! Are we supposed to fundraise?!
First off, thank you for joining our team!!! You rock! I would LOVE for you to set your own goal for fundraising. My suggested goal would be $100 per individual. If we can get 20 people to join our team and raise $100 then we can meet our team goal. Now if you want to raise more- DO IT! If that seems like too much- no pressure. Having you be there is what counts!
Okay- I fundraised some money/I recruited some people to donate- now what?
You can either direct people to our team and they can donate there OR you can collect the money you raised and donate it to our team through your individual registration.
OR you can print this out and have the donor mail in their donation
Are donations tax-deductible?
Yes! The Colon Cancer Coalition is a qualified organization recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, EIN 30-0377727. Gifts made are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Nikki are you going to walk?!?
Heres the deal- I am not putting pressure on myself to train for a race on top of everything else lol SO...I will start off walking, I may add in some running strides here and there if the motivation rises within me, and I might slow it down to a walk again. ;) This isn't about who can race to the finish line the fastest- this about showing up and raising awareness. SO- please don't worry if you plan to walk the whole race!!! If you are pumped and ready to run the race-awesome!!! I will meet you at the end when I get there ;). In the words of Matt Moore, "Don't worry your little head!" about the race portion---having you there (even if you cheer us on for the side lines) will be awesome!!!
Nikki- I am not going to be in Tucson during the race but I want to be apart of it--- what can I do?!
You can always be on our team as a "virtual runner". Just follow the steps to register and register as a "virtual runner".
How else can I help?!
Spread the word!!! Gather your friends, family, co-workers and have them join our team! Let's GO BIG on this one!!! I seriously would LOVE to have a big team!!! Share our social media pages with race info!
