For the second year, the Get Your Rear in Gear event is happening in Grand Rapids, going virtual this year. The idea behind it is to increase awareness of screening for colon cancer. All of the money raised will stay right here in West Michigan.

Your goal is to stay active, doing whatever it is you like to do, for 24 minutes on Aug. 22. This is in honor of one in 24 people who are diagnosed with colon cancer.

Take a quick video or selfie of yourself doing the activity and post it to Facebook or Instagram using #GYRIGMYWAY
