THE DON’T GET LEFT BEHIND CHALLENGE
September 15, 2020 @ 8:00 am - November 30, 2020 @ 5:00 pm -
DID YOU KNOW that 1 in 20 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer during their lifetime?
The DON’T GET LEFT BEHIND CHALLENGE is a 75-day movement and fundraising challenge dedicated to supporting The Colon Cancer Foundation’s vision of A World Without Colorectal Cancer™ through advocacy, research, and awareness.
In the Fall of 2020, we challenge each participant to complete 45 miles in whichever way they prefer (run, walk, cycle, dance, swim, row, etc.) and aim to raise $450 towards our mission. Registration is $20 and will count toward your fundraising goal. There is no required fundraising minimum, but we do encourage you to set your goal at $450.
Join the Challenge, share the CCF mission, track your progress, and earn premium swag all while experiencing the impact of your fundraising.
WHY 45 MILES AND $450?
Colorectal cancer is on the rise in younger Americans. For many years now, CCF has advocated for lowering the age at which colorectal cancer screening should begin. In 2019, the American Cancer Society responded by lowering the recommended screening age from 50 to 45. We are extremely proud of this recent victory BUT(T) we recognize how far we have to go until every eligible American IS screened at 45. We are inviting you to move 45 miles and raise $450 – the average cost to send our outreach team to an underserved community to spread the word. We will be supporting you every mile of the way.
Let’s save lives one mile at a time!
