PHILADELPHIA (August 27, 2020) - Fox Chase Cancer Center proudly supports the Philadelphia Walk to End Colon Cancer, a fundraising event organized by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance (Alliance) to raise money for colorectal cancer research, education, and awareness. In accordance with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, the yearly walk will be held virtually on Saturday, September 12.

“Although the means by which the event is being held are atypical, it still presents a great opportunity for colorectal cancer patients and their supportive communities to safely support one another and raise money for screening, support, and research,” said Fox Chase team captain Joshua E. Meyer, MD, associate professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology.
Participants will include Fox Chase faculty and staff, volunteers, survivors, friends, and family. As part of the virtual event, participants are encouraged to walk in their neighborhoods. The exact time and location of the drive-thru victory lap celebration will be announced on the Alliance website.
Philadelphia is one of 15 locations to host the Walk to End Colon Cancer.
