The 2012 NY Colon Cancer Challenge

SUNDAY, APRIL 1st, 2012

CENTRAL PARK, NEW YORK

4 MILE RUN

15K RUN

1.7 MILE REMEMBRANCE & PREVENTION WALK

Join thousands in Central Park for the tri-state’s premier colorectal cancer awareness event – the 9th Annual New York Colon Cancer Challenge. The Challenge offers colorectal cancer survivors, and the family and friends of those affected by colorectal cancer a unique opportunity to help raise public awareness and contribute to the fight against this often fatal, yet often preventable disease.

Over 150,000 new cases of colorectal cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year and an estimated 50,000 people will die. By participating in the Challenge you help spread the important message that early screening saves lives.   We encourage you to take an active role in your health by becoming educated about colorectal cancer and speaking with your family and health care provider about your medical history, risk factors and screening options.

Choose the 4-Mile, 15K run, or the 1.7 Mile Remembrance & Prevention Walk – no matter what distance you cover, you’ll make up ground in the race to prevent colorectal cancer.

All funds raised directly support the Colon Cancer challenge Foundation (CCCF). The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to A World Without Colorectal Cancer through: public awareness, prevention, screening and research.
