Greater Chattanooga Colon Cancer Foundation
Preventable : Treatable : Beatable
As many of you know, my sister Beth has recently been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. It was just 18 months ago we lost our beloved stepmom to the same disease. I'm asking you join my family and me as we raise money to fight this terrible disease.
Money raised through the Greater Chattanooga Rump Run will benefit GCCCF as we re-invest your funds into local projects to help increase awareness of colorectal cancer, improve access to screening, and offer support to those affected by the disease. One hundred percent of all funds raised will remain local to support the mission of GCCCF in our fight against colon cancer. The success of this event since 2011 has allowed the GCCCF to provide the following to the Greater Chattanooga community:
