The first 5K Race Against Colon Cancer will take place at 8 a.m. June 1 at the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park in Leander.
The event, hosted by the Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, is intended to raise awareness on colon cancer, which is the third most-common type of cancer and the third leading cause of U.S. cancer deaths, according to a news release issued by the hospital.
Families are encouraged to get involved, with reduced entry fees available for children ages 11–17 and free entry for ages 10 and under. There will also be a fun run for children after the 5K race.
