About 2022 Colon Cancer Challenge


Individual and Team Fundraiser Registration

Welcome to the Colon Cancer Challenge Fundraiser!

2022 marks the 19th year of our signature event - the Colon Cancer Challenge

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

Did you know that cancer screening rates have dropped more than one third since the start of the coronavirus pandemic? The Colon Cancer Foundation is committed to turning this trend around by expanding the reach of our public awareness and education campaigns and working with institutions in underserved communities improve screening rates. 

But we can’t achieve this critical goal without your help!
