Colon Cancer Challenge Launching New Jersey Walk to Fight Cancer
Annual run/walk adding third Challenge in Newark to raise money to fight colorectal cancer
WHITE PLAINS, New York – October 1, 2014 – The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF), a New York-based nonprofit dedicated to reducing colorectal cancer incidence and death throughout the United States, has added a third Colon Cancer Challenge run/walk on November 15 at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, as it moves into the second decade of its annual public awareness and fundraising event.
In 2014, the Challenge grew so much that the CCCF not only moved the New York City run to a new venue, but added a second Colon Cancer Challenge at Manhattanville College. By bringing the Challenge to The Rock, CCCF is expanding the reach of New York’s largest colorectal cancer awareness event, and will give even more people a chance to participate and raise money for colorectal cancer research, education and screening.
“Our supporters during the last decade of the Challenge have been outstanding, and it’s because of them that we’ve been able to add a second and third Challenge this year,” said Dr. Thomas Weber, CCCF founder. “We’re excited to come to New Jersey in our ongoing work to end colorectal cancer.”
