2021 Events

We are a non-profit organization and proceeds from our events will remain local. Over the years we have helped to support colon cancer research at the Wilmot Cancer Center, the development of cancer awareness programs through the University of Rochester’s Division of Gastroenterology & Hepatology, and provided funds for the Livingston County Department of Health Cancer Prevention Program and Cancer Services of Monroe County, among others.
