About Colon Cancer

Colorectal Cancer is the second-leading cause of U.S. cancer deaths for men and women combined. Colon Cancer affects people of all ethnic backgrounds equally. Every year, nearly 150,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with the disease, and nearly 60,000 die. This is a disease, which if caught early, can be treatable.

Form a Fundraising TEAM to fight colon cancer

Here is a great way for you to raise funds for Chris4Life and colon cancer awareness with your network of family, friends, business contacts, and loved ones. Make a difference at Chris4Life Fundraising Page

Chris4Life Mission

The goal of Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation is to eliminate the threat of colon cancer through discovery of a cure: to fund and facilitate cutting edge research programs across the nation, to significantly improve the lives of patients diagnosed with colon cancer by funding and developing programs to support patients and their caregivers, and to increase awareness of the life-saving importance of early screening for colon cancer by using innovative strategies.

Packet Pick up and Late Registration

Pre-Race packet pick up will be held on Friday, October 31st from 4pm to 7pm at RUNdetroit, 441 W Canfield, Ste #5, Detroit, MI 48201. Race Day packet pick up & late registration will be held on race day Saturday, November 1, 2014 at Rivard Plaza on the RiverWalk from 8:00 to 9:45 AM. There are no refunds.

Picking Up for your Friends, Relatives/Co-workers

We do allow runners to pick up bibs and t-shirts for their friends. Please note that t-shirts cannot be mailed. You will not need to show us your ID or copies of their ID to pick up for them. [

ChronoTrack Timing and Scoring

Transponder timing operated by Everal Race Management will be used to score the 3.1 mile race. The system uses a computer "chip" which is included in each bib and records the exact time a runner crosses the starting line and finish line, resulting in a net time for each runner. Overall awards will be based upon clock time and age group & team awards will be based upon transponder times.

Parking Information

Minimal free/street parking exists by the venue so carpooling is encouraged. GM has graciously agreed to open their lot to our participants. Address: 700 Atwater St, Detroit, MI 48207. Fee: $5 per car (cash only). Entrance available from 6-10:30am. The next closest pay lots are located by the GM Renaissance Center. Please see the event website for more details.
