Recently, Team Colon Cancer Challenge ran the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon, where they “made their miles count” by raising funds to support the Colon Cancer Foundation. Each member of the team raised at least $3,000 to support colon cancer survivors and patients.
According to the American Cancer Society, the lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is around 1 in 22 for men and 1 in 24 for women. Every member of Team Colon Cancer Challenge helps spread the word that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with early screening. The Colon Cancer Foundation launched Team Colon Cancer Challenge in 2010 and has raised over $500,000 in support of efforts to raise awareness of colon cancer.
The 2019 Team Colon Cancer Challenge New York Marathon runners have currently raised over $100,000! Thank you and congratulations to all of the Team Colon Cancer team members:
Claudia and Chelsea Lee Hammerschmidt
