March 24, 2019 - New York
2019 marks the 16th Anniversary of the Colon Cancer Challenge and we are thrilled to be returning to Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island Across the United States teams of families, friends, co-workers and 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 strategic initiatives of Public Awareness, Prevention, Screening and Research. Why Take the Challenge? While we have made great progress in reducing incidence and death rates of those 50 or older over the last decade through the prevention and early detection of colorectal cancer through screening – the simple fact is colorectal cancer is still the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death. And, incidence rates and death of those under 50 have increased at an alarming rate each year.

Spend the early morning exploring the cemetery, looking for overwintering waterfowl, nuthatches, woodpeckers, sparrows, finches and any half-hardy birds that decided to stick around. By February we'll see some of the early north-bound birds beginning to trickle back into the area.
