Is there a stranger sweepstakes than this

Ok I know this is being offered with the best intentions but
A sweepstakes to win a colonoscopy ??

staircase

I checked out the facility in New York that performs your prize. Wow, a really nice place between Madison Ave. and Park Ave. The above picture is from their site - I guess because of the subject - it reminds me of a colonoscopy.

Winning this would really leave me with memories of New York. Hmm, do they include a trip in the other tunnels too?

Here's a piece of the description from the sweepstakes site:
"... When the colonoscopy is about to begin, you'll be given drugs which will make you feel like you're at Woodstock... only without the music. If you start to believe that you actually are at Woodstock (for example, Dr. Miskovitz starts to look like Jimi Hendrix or you feel inclined to say "far out!" in response to questions), please report the side effect to Dr. Miskovitz or Jimi Hendrix (whomever you see first) immediately...."
That sounds cool.

BTW - I know cancer is very serious and too many are it's victims.

A prize with a 'sting in the tail'. What if you get bad news at the end of it?

What do the runners up get, I wonder?

@alantru rehab? Have not and don't plan to ever use it but I don't picture it as relaxing. Too many doctors and questions and group activities. Winning massage therapy might be a better one.
thanks

@blunt delivery - it is funny the results might not be the whole idea of camera taking that trip is kinda strange - I wonder if they take all adult entries.

@dayflyer - I guess the bad news would be considered good to know news - runners up ? good question - maybe just the laxative part.
