The Bum Run is a non-profit organization founded by Dr. Ian Bookman, Medical Director of Kensington Screen Clinic and a gastroenterologist in Toronto. The goal of the event is to raise awareness about colorectal cancer screening and to prevent the 95% of colon cancer deaths which occur each year.
Our mission is to increase awareness about colorectal cancer and the importance of cancer screening. We want to increase participation in screening programs to prevent colorectal cancer and to raise funds for charities that have a record in saving lives through promoting easy access to screening.
All proceeds from the 2017 Balanse Bum Run will go toward one of several colorectal cancer-related charities. The charities have been selected based on their performance record and proposed use of the funds. The Kensington Screening Clinic is a purpose-built, not-for-profit ambulatory endoscopy clinic that opened its doors in 2009. The care team at the clinic provides quality endoscopy services in a safe and comfortable environment. Our goal is to exceed patient expectations and improve quality of life by providing exceptional preventative screening services and achieving excellent health outcomes.
On Sunday April 30, 2017 at 8 a.m., participants will launch the sixth annual Balanse Bum Run, a 5 Kilometre walk/run event to raise awareness of colorectal cancer. The event will start at Queen’s Park Circle, continue along College Street, Spadina Avenue, Bloor Street and Bay Street. The Balanse Bum Run is organized in coordination with the City of Toronto, local City Councilors, and the Sergeant of Arms of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
Remember to mark your calendar and join Team Kensington at the 2017 Balanse Bum Run on April 30th!
