What is the Colon Cancer Challenge?

2017 marks the 14th year of our signature event – the Colon Cancer Challenge. Teams of families, friends, co-workers, local and national corporations will come together to raise awareness of colorectal cancer, support those battling the disease and raise funds for the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation’s strategic initiatives of Public Awareness, Prevention, and Research.

The Colon Cancer Challenge offers survivors, family and friends of those affected by colorectal cancer a unique opportunity to raise public awareness and contribute to the fight against this preventable, yet often fatal disease. Participants can choose to participate in a 1.7 Mile Remembrance & Prevention Walk, a 4M or 5K run or the Kid’s Fun Run.

What is the Wellness Festival?

The Wellness Festival includes informational booths, demonstrations, and interactive activities for our participants. This festival is an excellent opportunity for area non-profit organizations and health service organizations to connect with the community and showcase programs and services aimed at the prevention and treatment options for those affected by colorectal cancer including exercise, nutrition and healthy lifestyles.

We would be delighted to have your organization participate as an exhibitor in this year’s festival.

We encourage exhibitors to have an interactive presentation of their services – we have plenty of space for an activity or demonstration if interested. We encourage exhibitors to think creatively about how to engage festival attendees and offer tips and ideas about healthy living. If you are interested in participating but not sure what you’d like to do, please contact us at 914.305.6674 to discuss your ideas.

How do I get involved?

If you would like to participate as an exhibitor, please complete the attached registration form for the appropriate venue. We also offer Sponsorship Opportunities. Once you are registered as an exhibitor, we will send a confirmation letter to the person you have designated as a contact. Also, please review the following pages for more details about the event and set up, and please share it with those responsible for your exhibitor booth at the Festival.
