7th Annual SCOPE (Sprint for Colorectal Oncology Prevention and Education) 5K Walk/Run
MD Anderson SCOPE organizers are getting ready for the 7th Annual Sprint for Colorectal Oncology Prevention and Education. Please join us to raise awareness about colorectal cancers with patients, survivors, families and friends.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer type in both men and women and the second leading cause of cancer death, even though it is highly preventable. Thanks to increased screening and treatment advances, the death rate from colorectal cancer has declined. Still, less than 50% of people eligible for regular screenings actually have it done. Colorectal cancer screening can help save lives. SCOPE invites you to partner with us to build awareness, promote education and celebrate survivorship!
