Help Us Support the Break Of Day Colon Cancer Awareness Walk

Help Us Support the Break Of Day Colon Cancer Awareness Walk

At 3rd Kind Customz, we care deeply about our community. We want to do all we can to help make sure our customers and our community remain happy and healthy. This is why we are participating in the local 3rd Annual 5K "Break of Day" Colon Cancer Walk.

Colon Cancer Awareness

Roughly 150,000 people are diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year in the U.S., and the disease is the No. 2 cancer killer of men and women in the U.S. When caught in its earliest stages, the 5-year survival rate is over 90 percent, which is why spreading awareness and encouraging testing is so important. 

In recent years, doctors and researchers around the world have created many kinds of treatment methods that have been shown to help patients fully recover. Medical researchers have also worked hard to develop important new and effective testing methods that can help identify those at risk. A simple test for colon cancer can even remove polyps that might otherwise develop into cancer cells if otherwise left untreated. 

The Break of Day Walk 

The 3rd Annual 5K "Break of Day" Colon Cancer Walk is an area event that aims to help prevent new cases of colon cancer and assist those currently battling the disease. 

The event will take place on Saturday, March 5, 2016, at Sylvester Turner Park. Welcoming remarks will be made at 6 a.m., with warm-up exercises beginning at 6:30 a.m. The walk will begin promptly at 6:45 a.m. and will last approximately one hour. Festivities will continue from 7:45 to 9 a.m.

The 3rd Annual event will be held March 5 at Sylvester Turner Park.

We will be there with our fellow Houstonians in support of this important cause. At 3rd Kind Customz, we are not just a business. We're also members of the community, and we know there are many people in our community who have been touched by cancer. We want to support these people and do what we can to help beat this disease. 

How You Can Get Involved

If you would like to join us in supporting this cause, there are several ways for you to get involved. First, you can join the walk! You can participate as an individual, join a team or start your own team. The cost to participate is $25 per person, and those who register before Feb. 25 are guaranteed an event T-shirt. 

If you're unable to actually participate in the race, you can still come out and support the walkers. Survivors, their friends and relatives, as well as anyone else in the community, is invited to come to the park to show their support for the walkers. We encourage everyone who attends the event to wear navy blue, the color that represents colon cancer. 

Anyone who wishes to donate to the event can also do that. Donations can be made through the Eventbrite page for the Break of Day race. Help us donate to a worthy cause that aims to show people how they can improve their diet to reduce their chances of colon cancer, get access to colonoscopies to identify and remove cancer, and assist cancer patients who are currently battling this disease. 

We hope you will join us in supporting the Houston community during the 3rd Annual 5K "Break of Day" Colon Cancer Walk. Only together can we defeat cancer.
