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!
