Giving Tuesday 2016 Thermometer

WOW! We raised $46,590 in 24 hours!

Our goal was to raise $15,000 in 24 hours, secure a $15,000 match for a total impact of $30,000. Our enthusiastic community donated an astounding $31,590 before the match, bringing the grand total for our #GivingTuesday campaign to $46,590. INCREDIBLE!#GivingTuesday 2016

Every dollar donated yesterday will provide critical support to colon cancer patients, survivors and their families, advance our life-saving research initiatives and fund our nationwide prevention efforts.

Special thanks to Kim Harris and Scott Weiner for their generous match and to everyone who responded to the challenge.

If you missed out on the fun on #GivingTuesday, it’s not too late to knock out colon cancer by making a donation. Our end-of-year fundraising campaign extends through midnight on December 31.
