Kicking For The Dream Reaches $20,000 Fundraising Goal to Fight Ovarian Cancer with 38 Days Left in Campaign. New Goal is $30,000
Date:11/24/2013

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 24, 2013

With 38 days left in its 2013 fundraising campaign, Kicking For The Dream has reached its fundraising goal of $20,000 to fight ovarian cancer according to Kicking For The Dream Founder NFL kicker Billy Cundiff.

Cundiff says he overwhelmed by the success of the fundraising effort and is extending the goal to $30,000 for the remaining 38 days left in the campaign.

“This project has taken off,” says Cundiff who is the kicker for the Cleveland Browns. “We are so excited and honored to have so many amazing people join our team.”

Go here to support Kicking For The Dream.

Cundiff says Kicking For The Dream was created to bring kicking specialists together from every level, to join in the fight against ovarian cancer. And it has done just that.

Some of the kicking specialists who have joined Kicking For The Dream’s effort represent the greatest names in NFL history such as Morten Andersen, Neil Rackers and Matt Stover. Some are high school kickers such as Grant Ryerse and Joseph Giglio.

“Kicking specialists are some of the most caring and generous people I know,” says Cundiff. “And the support Kicking For The Dream has received, from so many kicking specialists in this fundraising effort, just confirms that.”

Cundiff says all money raised by Kicking For The Dream will go directly to Colleen’s Dream Foundation, a foundation he and his wife Nicole started in 2012 as a result of his mother-in-laws’ battle with ovarian cancer.

“Many women succumb to this disease within a short period of time, because unlike cervical or breast cancer, ovarian cancer does not have a standardized early detection procedure,” says Cundiff. “That is what happened to my mother-in-law, Colleen Drury.”

Cundiff says it was Colleen’s “dream” that someday other women would not have to go through what she went through when faced with ovarian cancer.

“Colleen felt it was important to raise money for research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer,” says Cundiff. “Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women’s health issues, we have an incredible opportunity for research and education.”

About Kicking For The Dream:

Billy Cundiff is the kicker for the Cleveland Browns and has been an NFL kicker for over 10 years for teams such as the Cowboys, Saints, Ravens and Redskins. Cundiff launched Kicking For The Dream in May of 2013 as an effort to support Colleen’s Dream Foundation; a foundation which raises money to support research for the early detection of, and improved treatment for, ovarian cancer.

About Colleen's Dream Foundation:

Colleen’s Dream Foundation started in 2012 and supports research for early detection and improved treatment for ovarian cancer.

The story of Colleen’s Dream started in 2007 when Billy Cundiff’s mother-in-law, Colleen Drury, was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. It was only then that Colleen and her family realized a new world that was filled with invasive surgery, harsh chemotherapy, and lots of uncertainty.

Colleen’s Dream Foundation believes it is important to raise money for research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer. Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women’s health issues, we have an incredible opportunity for research and education.

Colleen’s Dream is working with some of the top research hospitals and universities that are researching ovarian cancer. By offering seed funding to young investigators, the Foundation funds cutting-edge research by some of the brightest, young minds in the world.

Colleen’s Dream Foundation is a qualified 501 (c) (3) tax exempt non-profit organization based in Phoenix, Arizona.
