The Mississippi Business Group on Health encourages its members to support community efforts to bring awareness and fundraising to it's member's health-related causes. GI Associates, an active member of the MSBGH has partnered with StinkyFeet Athletics to host the 1st annual Butts and Guts 5K Race and Walk.
100% of the net proceeds will be donated to the Mississippi's 70X2020 Colon Cancer awareness initiative which will benefit local Mississippians. The MSBGH is part of the 70x2020 initiative and encourages all employers to promote colon cancer screenings and to strive to have 70% of their population be screened by 2020. Only 57% of eligible Mississippians have been screened for colon cancer. If detected early, colon cancer is over 90% curable. That’s why it is so important to spread awareness about the importance of getting screened.
The goal for this race is to raise $15,000 for this cause.
