NFL Kicking Specialists Help Kicking For The Dream Raise Over $40,000 to Fight Ovarian Cancer in Its 2013 Fundraising Campaign
Date:1/7/2014

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

NFL kicker Billy Cundiff gets a little help from his friends as NFL kickers, punters and snappers help Kicking For The Dream raise $40,981 in its 2013 fundraising effort to fight ovarian cancer.

“Our NFL guys all stepped up big time to help Kicking For The Dream’s 2013 fundraising effort,” says Cundiff. “Nick Novak and Spencer Lanning have personally been touched by ovarian cancer. Their enthusiasm and effort were incredible. Ryan Quigley just wanted to make a difference."

Go here to see all the kicking specialists who supported the 2013 Kicking For The Dream fundraising campaign.

Novak, who raised over $7,000 for Kicking For The Dream says his fundraising efforts were very personal.

“We have all been affected by cancer in some way or another,” says Novak. “For me it was Annie Arth, she passed in 2005 after battling ovarian and breast cancer her entire adult life. A very good family friend and neighbor, I admired her so much because of her positive attitude and strength through it all.”

Novak said he had no hesitation when Cundiff asked him to participate in the fundraising effort.

“I tip my hat to Cundiff and all the others involved,” says Novak. “This is what it’s all about.”

Cundiff couldn’t agree more saying that bringing kicking specialists together -from every level- to join in the fight against ovarian cancer, is what Kicking For The Dream is all about. He says this years’ success just validates the project concept.

“Together, regardless of their background, these kicking specialists raised a ton of awareness about ovarian cancer, and money for cutting edge research to fight this disease,” says Cundiff. “These guys are first class and we couldn't be more honored to have them on our team."

Cundiff says as impressive as the 2013 Kicking For The Dream team was, he believes the 2014 fundraising team will even be bigger.

"We already have Arena League guys that want to step up their efforts,” says Cundiff. “This program is really taking off."

Cundiff says all money raised by Kicking For The Dream goes 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. He says the 2014 fundraising effort will start in September to coincide with the NFL season.

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.
