Thank You – Strides For Life Colon Cancer Foundation 11th Annual Dinner & Auction
Thank you to the 500 guests who attended our 11th Annual Dinner & Auction on March 8th. Your generosity and support continue to help our Foundation grow. We would also like to thank our sponsors and those who donated to our live and silent auctions. With your contributions we are able to continue our mission of the prevention and early detection of colon cancer.
Last year we performed 45 colonoscopies with a retail cost of $197,215.44. We paid $41,697.87. That means each dollar you donate turns into six dollars in retail value thanks to our partners who provide us a discounted rate on all colonoscopies and associated services. Without all of you, we could not make a difference in the lives of so many people.
The Strides for Life Colon Cancer Foundation mission is the prevention and early detection of colon cancer. This mission is accomplished through a variety of educational programs directed at increasing awareness of colon cancer among both healthcare providers and the general population. Included are programs of public education, wide scale screening initiatives and risk reduction strategies directed toward populations at risk.
With your Strides for Life sponsorship or donation, you are guaranteed a place in history, a place in the hearts of people worldwide, and an unparalleled memory secured in the minds of those whose lives are saved because of your partnering efforts with our foundation. You will reach an audience who’s lives are touched by colon cancer in a summer-long promotional campaign via the internet, local media and extensive advertisements in and around the greater San Francisco Bay Area. All contributions to the organization, both large and small, directly support our cause. There are a number of ways you can make a donation.
