Help me in the fight against colorectal cancer!
This year I am making my half marathon miles count by joining TEAM COLON CANCER CHALLENGE (CCCF). I joined Team CCCF because I want to make an impact in the fight against colorectal cancer. When you support me with a donation, you are joining our global movement to end colorectal cancer forever!
I joined Team CCCF in support of my friend, Kathryn Winward and her father Bill Williams who lost his battle with colon cancer in 2013. In early 2015, Edith Harris, my aunt, also succumbed to the disease. The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) has been working in NYC since 2003, funding screening progams for the uninsured, and providing much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer. Funds go directly to these programs and allow CCCF to spread the message that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with early screening.
More than an estimated 51,000 Americans died from colorectal cancer this past year and yet colorectal cancer is largely Preventable, Treatable and Beatable with early screening.
Making a donation is easier than ever. You can make a donation online by clicking on the DONATE NOW button above. Your support helps us get another step closer to a World Without Colorectal Cancer ™.
By the end of 2014 TEAM CCCF will have raised more than $375,000 in support of efforts to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and the importance of early screening, prevention, and research.
Thank you for your support. Please share our story with your friends and family and GET SCREENED!
