This March, I will be hitting the streets of New York City to run my first ever half marathon in memory of my dad and alongside other members of Team Colon Cancer Challenge. I will be making my miles count by raising funds to support the Colon Cancer Foundation's mission of a World Without Colorectal Cancer.
Please consider donating to help me reach my fundraising goals. As always, your support is much appreciated! See you out there on March 15th!
About the Foundation:
The Colon Cancer Foundation has been working in New York City since 2003, raising awareness of colorectal cancer, funding screening programs for the uninsured, and providing much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer.
More than an estimated 51,000 Americans died from colon cancer this past year. When you join Team Colon Cancer Challenge you join the fight against colorectal cancer and help us spread the word that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with early screening.
The Colon Cancer Foundation launched Team Colon Cancer Challenge in 2010 to:
Encourage colorectal cancer survivors to incorporate exercise into their everyday lives as a way to significantly reduce the rate of recurrence.
Provide a grassroots opportunity for colorectal cancer survivors and their family members to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer in their community, and offer those who have lost a loved one to colorectal cancer a positive and effective channel for their rallying cry against colorectal cancer.
Team Colon Cancer Challenge has raised more than $900,000 in support of efforts to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and the importance of early screening, prevention, and research.
