In 2012 Team Butt Buddies was formed after my mother Beth, aka Izzy, was diagnosed with colon cancer The team name that year was Izzy’s Butt Buddies. In 2014 we dropped the Izzy in order to include our good friend Gerald Dorsey. Since that time, Team Butt Buddies has continued in its fight against colorectal cancer thanks to support from all of you!
Colorectal cancer is not only preventable, it’s treatable if caught early. Unfortunately, over 20 million Americans who are eligible for screening have yet to be screened and colorectal cancer remains the second-leading cause of cancer death for men and women combined. We still have a lot of work to do and we hope you will help us.
On March 28, 2020, Team Butt Buddies will be running/walking in the Get Your Rear in Gear-Tulsa; an event hosted by the Colon Cancer Coalition. Please consider joining Team Butt Buddies in the fight against colorectal cancer and register for GYRIG-Tulsa 2020. If you can't join us on race day, we hope you'll consider supporting Team Butt Buddies through a donation, or even becoming a virtual racer and joining us in fundraising efforts!
