Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Colon cancer is not something many people like to talk about, but WHAS11's Joe Arnold has made it his mission to help people get screened and avoid the disease.
Today, Joe will be the honorary chair of the 9th annual Walk Away From Colon Cancer and 5K Run.
It's the largest annual fundraiser for the Colon Cancer Prevention Project.
Joe lost his sister to colon cancer, and today, he will share his personal story to help raise awareness about the importance of screening.
The Walk Away From Colon Cancer and 5K Run begins at 9 a.m. at Iroquois Park near the amphitheater.
