Our Story

Seeking to make a personal impact in the fight against cancer, a group of family and friends founded the Colorado Cancer Foundation (CCF) in 1979. In succeeding years, the 501(c)(3) charitable organization grew beyond curative treatment and palliative care to include medical research and education at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO. Funded through generous donations and a series of charity-based sporting events, including the annual Eldorado Run for the Cure, the CCF continues to expand its reach, impacting the lives of patients, families, physicians, researchers, and medical students throughout the State of Colorado.
