One of this years participants is Janelle Hill, a colon cancer survivor. She gave Scott Pasmore the lowdown on the event and shared her own story.

"I truly believe that I can make a difference and educate others simply based on my knowledge of the disease and the passion that I have in my heart for this cause," Hill said.
