Rapid City gets TP'd to raise colorectal cancer awareness

Posted:

Be on the lookout for enormous rolls of toilet paper in Rapid City.  They're actually just hay bales covered in white, designed to make a humorous point about a very serious subject.

It's national colorectal cancer awareness month, and in an effort to remind people about the importance of prevention, the South Dakota Department of Health placed a total of 11 hay bales in six different locations across the state.  The message on them says: stop the number two killer.
 
Actual rolls of toilet paper with the same message were delivered to clinics around the state to remind health care providers to talk to their patients about available screening tests.
Colonoscopy's are recommended for people age 50 and older.
