For 2022, back by popular acclaim, the “Ride or Stride for 45” Virtual Challenge will bring together the ACG family and GI community to show their commitment to colorectal cancer screening and prevention and highlight age 45 to begin colorectal cancer screening for all average risk adults, as recommended in the updated 2021 ACG Clinical Guidelines on Colorectal Cancer Screening (Shaukat, et al.)
About “Ride or Stride for 45” in 2022
In this virtual event, Co-Chairs Dr. Samir Shah, Dr. David Greenwald, and Dr. Seth Gross invite ACG members, your patients, families and friends to bike, run or walk 45 miles in March (or 45 minutes per day during the month) to show your support and enthusiasm for preventing colorectal cancer beginning at age 45 for all average risk adults.
The American College of Gastroenterology urges you to get some exercise, share the message of colorectal cancer prevention, and connect via social media during this monthlong observance. Proceeds of this event will benefit the ACG Institute for Clinical Research & Education.
