NFL And American Cancer Society Expand Crucial Catch Campaign To Support Multiple Cancers

This year, the National Football League and the American Cancer Society (Acs) are expanding their efforts to support the fight against cancer through the “Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer” campaign.

After nearly a decade of supporting breast cancer, the NFL and Acs have broadened the campaign to include early detection and risk reduction efforts for other cancers to increase the impact of the campaign.

Since 2009, the NFL has raised more than $18 million for Acs through the partnership. Money raised through Crucial Catch this season will be directed toward efforts to encourage people to get screening tests for three cancers: breast, colorectal and cervical. Funding will continue to support the American Cancer Society’s Community Health Advocates implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity (Change) program, which provides outreach and cancer screenings to individuals in underserved communities. Since 2012, grant recipients have contributed to nearly 150,000 screenings and 450,000 education and outreach interventions.
