Run For Your Buns 5K

The Christian County Health Department hosted the second annual Colon Cancer Awareness “Run For Your Buns” 5K. March is National Colon Cancer Awareness month and people from surrounding counties gathered to support this cause. Registration was only $20.00 and included a Run For Your Buns 5k baseball cap. Walking, running, skipping, or jogging was encouraged to make it through the 3.1 miles. The Christian County Health department was grateful for the support of the Hopkinsville Police Department, Hopkinsville Fire Department and Christian County Rescue Team for their assistance in leading and guiding the runners during the event. They provided guidance to runners and insured safety. Colon cancer is very preventable with screenings. The purpose of the run is to encourage people to get screened. One of the runners, Beth Dillingham, of Dawson Springs, Kentucky, is a colon cancer survivor of fourteen years. For additional information, call 270-887-4160 or visit
