Every day one Nova Scotian dies from a disease that is 90% preventable. That disease is colorectal cancer. We’re on a mission to prevent this silent killer through Get Up There, a public awareness movement, fundraiser and event. Since 2009, GUT has raised more than $300,000 in the fight against colorectal cancer. As we prepare for the ninth annual event, on Friday, February 24 at Ski Wentworth, we need your help.

We don’t need you to move mountains; we just need you to climb one – preferably with a large group of your family, friends and coworkers. It’s simple. The more people you invite; the more awareness we will spread about this insidious disease. We promise to do most of the heavy lifting. All you need is to sign up and join a team of people who want to have fun, get some exercise and make a difference. Sign up today to help us spread awareness, reduce the stigma and get up there!
