28 team members. 26.2 miles. Over $128,000 raised.
This year’s TCS NYC Marathon was a record-breaker for Team Colon Cancer Challenge, and we could not be more grateful to this spirited, motivated, and dedicated group of athletes. Together, our team has raised close to $130,000 – that’s almost DOUBLE our original fundraising goal! We are humbled and proud to have been represented by such an enthusiastic group of runners, survivors, caregivers, and supporters.
Why is Team Colon Cancer Challenge a vital part of what we do here at CCF? Team Colon Cancer Challenge is about more than running, more than fundraising. We consider our team members to be our grassroots ambassadors. Pavement-pounding awareness-raisers. We can calculate the miles, we can calculate the funds. But what is immeasurable is perhaps what is most valuable: spreading the word. Telling people why you have joined Team Colon Cancer Challenge and communicating why this cause is important to you and should be important to everyone.
During his marathon training this year, Team CCC and Team Luc member Anthony Gollan received the following text from a friend:
As long as colorectal cancer remains the #2 cancer killer, we need our relentless runners in their blue shirts. And we cannot thank the 28 members of this year’s team enough for their incredible accomplishments before, during, and after the Marathon.
Stephanie, John, Robby, Matthew, Anthony, Michael, Anthony, Brian and Deb, Dan, Gretchen, Ceara, Scott, Thomas, Diane, Ian, Hillary, Cathy, Lou, Frank, Jerry, Mark, David, Tamara, Jason, and Amy: THANK YOU. Together, you broke records, achieved milestones, and saved lives.
