 10TH ANNIVERSARY COLON CANCER CHALLENGE A SUCCESS

 

SurvivorsCeremonyOver 6,000 people joined us in Central Park to run or walk with us. Thousands more came to cheer their loved ones on and participate in the Prevention and Remembrance Festival.

 

It was an all-around spectacular day, the weather was perfect for running and walking, the flowers were in bloom, and everyone had the time and space to honor the lives of those they have lost and to celebrate the miracle of those who have survived.

Thousands walked through The Rollin' Colon exhibit and took the opportunity to speak with staff at the health education tent. Hundreds are Taking the Challenge to Get Screened this year as part of our new campaign SIGN UP NY! 

150 Teams have helped us raise over $400,000 - we are well on our way to reaching our goal of raising $1,000,000 in 2013 to support our mission of "A World Without Colorectal Cancer" and our strategic initiatives of public awareness, screening for the uninsured, and the research that will answer the important question of why so many people under the age of 50, are being diagnosed and dying of colorectal cancer. CCC13 Walk01

We're not done yet – You can participate in the Colon Cancer Challenge by creating a Local Challenge at events.coloncancerchallenge.org through August 31, 2013.

With grateful recognition of all you do. You are making a difference!
