BENEFITING: COLON CANCER CHALLENGE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: COLON CANCER CHALLENGE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2016
I just signed up for the 2016 George Washington Bridge Challenge.
Not only will I be training like crazy for my "walk", but more importantly, I’m going to leverage all that training and hard work to help raise money for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation and the fight against colorectal cancer. Funds raised will go to life saving public awareness, prevention, screening and research programs aimed all focused on reducing the number of loved ones we lose to this preventable, treatable and beatable disease.
I'm reaching out to everyone I know to help me raise $750 for this cause. Any amount you can give is so appreciated.
Just click here [https://www.crowdrise.com/2016-george-washington-bridge-challenge-/fundraiser/ellenturkel] to check out my fundraiser and click the big donate button. Please give what you can. It'll take you about ten seconds. Here are some quick facts about my cause...
Colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer of women and men in the US. Over 150,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer this year and sadly more than 1/3 will lose their battle with this often silent killer. There is hope however, over 60% of cases could be prevented with screening. And, more than 30% of cases could be eliminated by incorporating a healthy diet and exercise!
If you have time also, come to the event to see me in person.
Thanks so much for your support.
