CT Challenge is a game changer for all who battle cancer. If you have orthopaedic surgery, you have P/T waiting for you nearly the moment you emerge from the operating room. If you have a heart issue, cardiac rehab is there to get you back on your feet. For people who go through cancer, there's next to nothing yet the after effects of the life saving treatments can be as brutal as they are necessary. ...after effects like neuropathy, exhaustion, depression, heart disease, weakness, risk of recurrence and secondary cancers ...the list goes on. The good news is, exercise and nutrition are the keys to countering these after effects. That's what CT Challenge provides, along with the community-building and positive attitude that truly helps people reclaim their lives from all that cancer would try to take away. That's why I support this incredible organization.

The CT Challenge marquis program "Center for Survivorship" has impacted the lives of hundreds of survivors in the past year. Every day we see Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors and Nutritionists improving their health with their expertise. There is no place
like this around that offers hope and a road map for cancer survivors to follow after their bout with cancer. Having worked in the fitness industry for 10 years the work the CT Challenge is doing is game changing. ( V.Fairchild Wellness Director)

Only $100,000 of the $2,000,000 raised gets to the charities per the 990. The rider fee is definitely more than the rider cost, so all donations should go to the charities. The ability of the CT Challenge to get donations to cancer survivors is worse that Pallotta Teamworks.
