March to Get Screened

March to Get Screened is a 5k to raise awareness of colon cancer. All proceeds benefit the BGC foundation for research and education. Come join us and spread awareness and honor those impacted by
colon cancer.

  • Getting screened saved my life. I was a non-smoking, normal weight 35 year old mom of 2 preschoolers when I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer (tumor size of 2 ping pong balls in my lower colon) proving that it is not just an old man thing.

    The BGC Foundation

    Over the years, the Borland-Groover Clinic has seen the life changing effects that a digestive disease has on a person and their family. Because of the overwhelming need for education and research to fight these illnesses, both in the patient and physician community, the Borland-Groover Foundation was founded. Founded in 2004, exclusively for charitable, educational, medical and scientific purposes.

  • March to Get Screened, 5K

    March 29, 2015,
    at Jacksonville Beach Fishing Pier

    It's our goal to make others aware that colon cancer can be prevented. Colon Cancer Screening is easier than you think and one of the best ways to prevent colon cancer. During your screening your physician is looking for precancerous polyps so he can remove them before they become cancerous. Your physician is also looking for cancer so he can treat it early.

    The MTGS 5k raises funds for research and education for Colon Cancer, the second leading cancer death. Every dollar raised by our participants will go to the BGC Foundation and further education, research, prevention and a cure for Colon Cancer.
