2016 marks the 13th year of our signature event - the Colon Cancer Challenge. Across the United States, teams of families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations will come together to raise awareness of colorectal cancer, support those battling the disease and raise funds for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation's strategic initiatives of Public Awareness, Prevention, Screening and Research.

We are delighted to announce our return to New York City and to partner with the Randall's Island Park Alliance for our signature event!
