Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation – LaTashia and George Kiel

George and LaTashia Kiel founded the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation in memory of George’s mother who lost her battle with Colon Cancer at the age of 59. The mission of the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation is to educate the public about colon cancer, support colon cancer research, advocate for appropriate screening measures and encourage healthy lifestyle choices.

The signature event for the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation is the Kick & Roll Classic 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament.

“Because of the ignorance that most of us embody in regards to the disease, I am on a mission to push colorectal cancer, the disease that stole my mother too soon, down the list of most frequently diagnosed cancers through education, public outreach, research, and various other initiatives, but mainly through the encouragement of conquering its most prevalent behavioral risk factors – physical inactivity, obesity and diet.” – George Kiel III
