EDINA, Minn. (WCCO) – More than 4,000 runners and walkers of all ages came out to Get Your Rear in Gear this morning,
The annual 5k, held at Southdale Center in Edina, helps raise money for the Colon Cancer Coalition.
It’s estimated 143 thousand people will be diagnosed with the disease this year.
WCCO’s Mark Rosen was on hand to help rev up the crowd and pass out awards.
Many of us at WCCO participate in this race to honor our friend and sports anchor Bob Rainey who died a few years ago from the disease.
