Skivvy scoot
Colon health is often an uncomfortable topic for people to talk about…so members of Wellmont Health Systems aren’t talking…they are undressing to bring awareness to colorectal cancer. The skivvy scoot is in the second year and the 5k race will take place in Kingsport on Sunday. Wellmont Cancer Institute hope the race…where runners wear their skivvies on the outside of their clothing…are bringing awareness to the 150-thousand people that are diagnosed with this easily diagnosed and highly treatable form of cancer. The best way according to co-sponsor Gastroenterology associates is to have a colonoscopy. Those age 50 and over should get then done….those over 40 if there is a history of polyps. Proceeds from this benefit will go toward helping low-income people afford to have colorectal screenings. The race will begin at noon…anyone wishing to participate can register at the start-finish line behind Holston Valley Outpatient Center. (CC)
