The Rumpshaker 5K has raised almost a million dollars to promote awareness about colorectal cancer, grant funds to fight and treat it, and provide hope for colorectal cancer survivors and those fighting the disease. Our inflatable colon display has traveled to over 90 health fairs and community venues since 2009 to educate our citizens about the need for regular colon screenings.
Rumpshaker, Inc. is fighting this disease by providing funds to Birmingham hospital GI labs to assist with the purchase of state of the art diagnostic equipment. To date, we have contributed nearly a quarter of a million dollars to various Birmingham hospitals. We are providing free colonoscopies to qualified Alabamians through the Colonoscopy Assist Program and the Colon Cancer Alliance.
Rumpshaker, Inc. is helping to provide hope for colorectal cancer patients in Alabama through the Lisa Martz Hope Fund. The goal of this fund is to provide community support networks for patients and their families. Additionally, we provide scholarship opportunities for family members of those affected by this disease as well as other short term financial assistance programs.
