Green Bay is getting the rear in gear Saturday.

It's a 5K run and walk designed to aid colon cancer prevention, raise awareness of the importance of early detection, and promote healthy living.

This year's event drew more than 300 racers.

Organizers say that number continues to grow.     

"It's just so awesome knowing that our message is getting out there more and more," Race director Hannah Vanhoof said. "That's our whole goal, so the more people that get out the better."

NBC26 is happy to participate in this year's event.
