ABOUT THE RACE
The Full Moon 5k was organized by Shane and Breann Angelovich in honor of Sindy Angelovich, who was diagnosed with colon cancer on December 16, 2011, at the age of 48. She went through surgery that month at Longmont United Hospital to remove a mass from her colon along with 31 lymph nodes. She went through chemotherapy from January to June 2012 at Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers and continues to fight the good fight with family and friends on her side. With prayers sent her way from across the world she continues to keep a strong spirit.
Money raised from the Full Moon 5k will benefit the Longmont United Hospital Foundation to continue colon cancer awareness and screening. Screening is important, even before the recommended age of 50, to find precancerous polyps in order to remove them and prevent the disease from spreading. Colon cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable!
