March is Colon Cancer awareness month!
Research study funded by "Strollin' for the Colon"
Last year’s annual Strollin' for the Colon run/walk resulted in a $10,000 to check to the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine that will help support Dr. Jennifer Findeis-Hosey’s study on Lynch Syndrome screening in advanced colorectal adenoma. Strollin’ for the Colon is sponsored by URMC’s Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology.

Since this donation was given for study on Lynch Syndrome, we have opened a new clinic for those at high risk for developing colon and other cancers at Wilmot Cancer Center. Now we can help prevent cancer in those patients who are at a greater risk.
Welcome to the website for the annual "Strollin' for the Colon" run/walk! Here you will find updates as they pertain to the event as well as a rundown, location, and even pictures of the run!
See you this year!
