Proceeds will benefit the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation, which is dedicated to finding a cure for colon cancer by funding and facilitating cutting edge research programs across the nation. We are also committed to improving the lives of patients diagnosed with colon cancer by funding and developing programs to support patients and their caregivers.  Another priority is increasing awareness of the life-saving importance of early screening for colon cancer by using innovative strategies.
