Going Coast to Coast for Cancer
The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) is proud to have been a part of the Million Dollar Marathon, a 4,000 mile team marathon relay across the country which took place from June 21 to August 1. Organized by Above + Beyond Cancer, a public charity that works to elevate the lives of those touched by cancer, the event crossed 15 states and more than 500 communities as the baton was passed from the Pacific to the Atlantic, one marathon at a time.
“Cancer fighters and their families have shown me the true meaning of life, the value of those people closest to us and that each moment is to be cherished,” said Steve Cannon, a founding member of Above + Beyond Cancer, about his desire to give back.
Team CCA was proudly represented by CCA ambassador Teri Greige, Cary Colbert, Christi Liebe, and Michelle, Michael and Nicole Sheahan. Teri, a stage IV colon cancer survivor and Ironman athlete, said of her experience: “Don't let an opportunity pass you by – the Coast to Coast Million Dollar Marathon was awesome and I was honored to run with Cary and Christi, my nieces. Powered by hope!”
Congrats to all marathoners on a job well done and for raising critical funds and awareness for the cause! If you have an interesting idea for a fundraiser, please contact Alison Ornitz at (202) 628-0123 ex. 109.
