THE STORY:

Austin Drew lost his life to this colon cancer almost a year ago at the young age of 39,  Halligan Drew will grow up without his father, Gina Drew is a single mother and widow.   Colon Cancer is a nasty disease and it must be stopped from ruining other lives.  I run for Austin, Gina, Halligan, the Drew Family and because it is the only way I know that I can help.  This is how we keep Austin's memory alive.  Help me to raise money for Colon Cancer Research.   Margie

COLON CANCER CHALLENGE FOUNDATION wrote -

The Colon Cancer Challenge 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 joinTeam 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.  

Each member of Team Colon Cancer Challenge has pledged to Make Their Miles Count by raising funds to support the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation’s mission of a World Without Colorectal Cancer.

The Colon Cancer Challenge 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,
  • 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 $445,000 in support of efforts to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and the importance of early screening, prevention, and research.  

For more information on joining Team Colon Cancer Challenge please visit coloncancerchallenge.org or contact us at info@coloncancerchallenge.org

**Starting a CrowdRise fundraiser does not guarantee you a slot in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon. If you need a guaranteed entry, you must contact the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation before setting up a fundraising page. You can also start a charity page on CrowdRise if you are not an official charity runner, but you will not receive guaranteed entry into the TCS New York City Marathon.
