Colon Cancer Awareness: 9th Annual Get Your Rear in Gear Philadelphia

Sunday, March 26, 2017, marks the 9th annual Get Your Rear in Gear (GYRIG) Philadelphia. Philadelphia is the location of one of nearly 50 GYRIG events held annually across the country. The Colon Cancer Coalition, the organization that started Get Your Rear in Gear, held the first GYRIG event in March 2005 in Minneapolis, MN. The initiative began in 2004 as one women’s reaction to the loss of her sister to colon cancer at the age of 46.

Through GYRIG events throughout the year, the Colon Cancer Coalition raises funds to increase screening and awareness for colon cancer. Money stays in the local communities where it is raised. GYRIG Philadelphia has been around since 2009–raising significant money for education, research, screenings, treatment and patient care in the Delaware Valley region.

Physicians Endoscopy has been a long-standing sponsor of the event and is proud to be a primary sponsor of the 2017 event!

Having their support and guidance provides a sense of security knowing they are truly invested in our ongoing success.” John Volpe, DO, Medical Director.

“It has been a pleasure working with the physicians and hospital in helping them to achieve their goals.  While the center has been successful for many years, the owners felt a business partner would help to support operations, reduce costs, and implement strategic planning for the next several years as healthcare continues to change.” Carol Stopa, SVP Business Development, Physicians Endoscopy.
