10th Annual Colon Cancer Challenge


The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation is pleased to announce the date of the 2013 NY Colon Cancer Challenge®.

SUNDAY, APRIL 7th, 2013


4 MILE RUN – 15K RUN .



2013 marks the 10th Anniversary of the Colon Cancer Challenge®. To celebrate we are launching the National Colon Cancer Challenge® encouraging supporters of our mission of eradicating colorectal cancer to Take The Challenge to their own communities during the month of March – National Colorectal Cancer Month. Festivities will culminate with our signature event – the New York Colon Cancer Challenge ® – on April 7, 2013.

Across the United States teams of families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations will come together to raise awareness of colorectal cancer, support those battling the disease and raise funds for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation’s strategic initiatives of Public Awareness, Prevention, Screening and Research.

Choose the 4-Mile, 15K run, or the 1.7 Mile Remembrance & Prevention Walk – no matter what distance you cover, you’ll make a difference in the fight against colorectal cancer.

Please note, this year registration for the 15K will take place directly through the NYRR site – Once you have registered you can register on our site as a NYRR Virtual Fundraiser using your User Name and Password. Please contact us at [email protected] with your NYRR receipt no. and we will provide you with a code to waive the NYRR Virtual Fundraiser fee.
