TIME TO GET YOUR COMPANY OR ORGANIZATION INVOLVED IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COLORECTAL CANCER
Whether your company or professional organization is large or small getting involved in the fight against colorectal cancer as a partner to the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation is an amazing opportunity to create a community-building experience within your circle of colleagues, friends and family. Just look at what the Professional Women at MetLife were able to do!
This year the MetLife Foundation joined Emblem Health, Sanofi-Aventis, Exact Sciences, Remco Press, and Protocol Driven Health Care in generously sponsoring the Challenge.
Participating in the Challenge was Kristin Grimm, Chair of Professional Women at MetLife (PWAM), a group within MetLife geared to helping women meet their personal and professional potential.
"I was lucky enough to have a father who survived colon cancer," said Kristin Grimm, New York's PWAM chair. "But when my great friend Christina Puglisi lost her mother to the disease, I knew I had to get involved. Too many people needlessly suffer from this preventable disease."
Puglisi joined Grimm for the Challenge and ran in the event in memory of her mother who succumbed to colon cancer in 2009. Christina and Kristin raised nearly $6,000.00 for the Challenge.
There are many ways to GET INVOLVED including:
Involve Your People
Involve Your Business
Involve Your Customers, Vendors & Supporters
Spread the Word
The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation is a volunteer-driven organization, and many of our best ideas were generated by volunteers just like you!
