Philadelphia's 2015 Get Your Rear In Gear Run/Walk

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

For the 4th year in a row, I will be running on Sunday, March 22, 2015 in the Colon Cancer Coalition's annual Get Your Rear in Gear (GYRIG) Race in honor of my dad, Randy Koch. There is both a 2 mile walk and a 4 mile run held at Philly's Please Touch Museum in West Fairmount Park--same location as last year! As many of you know, my dad was diagnosed in May 2011 with colorectal cancer and fought an unbelievably courageous battle. He lost his battle on December 23, 2011 at the age of 53. My dad was aware months before he passed away that I was intending to do this run, and it's my goal to keep this a tradition every year. The Colon Cancer Coalition holds GYRIG events across the country to empower, to encourage, and to support. And of course, to honor. Please join us in raising colorectal cancer awareness!

I will be updating through this group often, and if you have any specific questions please feel free to message or call me! I'll post more details when race day gets closer. Love you guys!
