I am pleased to have the opportunity to post regarding a run that will take place this July in support of colon cancer research. Michael Brown was diagnosed with Colon cancer at the age of 26-years-old. After 4 years in remission, he was re-diagnosed in December 2013 with a very rare type of colon cancer. In hopes of creating more awareness and research about rare types of colon cancer, the Michael P. Brown Colon Cancer foundation was born. On Saturday, July 22 we will hold our fourth annual Michaelís 5K Run/1 Mile Walk for Life in Germantown Hills. Food will be available for purchase from 5 PM-10 PM. The race will begin at 6 PM. Awards will be given to the top three overall menís and womenís finishers. The Joe Stamm Band will be playing after the race from 7:30 PM-11:30 PM. T-shirts and a free entry to the band will be given to each participant. Please consider helping us spread the word and joining us. Register at You can also find us on Facebook under Michael P. Brown Colon Cancer Foundation. For more information call us at 309-678-3545 or email us at Thank you for your time.
