CCCF's Super-Awesome Colon-O-Tron Raising Awareness of Colorectal Cancer in Rockefeller Plaza

EHE International donated plaza window to Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation for awareness game through March 31

NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF), a New York-based nonprofit dedicated to reducing colorectal cancer incidence and death throughout the United States, is making it easier to talk and learn about colorectal cancer with the Super-Awesome Colon-O-Tron, an interactive, educational game in the Rockefeller Plaza window. The window was generously donated by EHE International to make people aware of the disease and help them get educated and take action.

The Super-Awesome Colon-O-Tron is making colorectal cancer something people will talk about with an eye-catching game encouraging people to stay lean, eat clean and get screened. The Colon-O-Tron will be in the 15-foot window at 10 Rockefeller Plaza through March 31.

"Many people don't realize colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer of women and men in this country or how preventable and treatable it is. We're thrilled EHE International would partner with us to help everyone who passes through Rockefeller Plaza become better educated about this disease during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month," said Catherine Montaldo, CCCF executive director.

The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation began in 2004 with its signature event, the Colon Cancer Challenge 5k run/walk, and now begins its second decade by reaching out to more people than ever through the window and two Challenges in 2014.

It is because colorectal cancer is so under recognized as a health risk in America that EHE International's donation is crucial to support bringing awareness and education to the cause.

"We are happy to do our part to help raise awareness on colon cancer and partner with the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation," said Deb McKeever, president of EHE International.

MRY, the agency that designed the Colon-O-Tron, got involved after one of their employees was diagnosed with colon cancer in her 20s. Her involvement with the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation spurred their commitment to fighting colorectal cancer.

Today traditional IT approaches leverage well-architected compute/networking domains to control what applications can access what data, and how. DevOps includes rapid application development/deployment leveraging concepts like containerization, third-party sourced applications and databases. Such applications need access to production data for its test and iteration cycles. Data Security? That sounds like a roadblock to DevOps vs. protecting the crown jewels to those in IT.
