Approach a local fabric store to donate squares of fabric that people can purchase in return for a donation for your fundraiser. Each piece of fabric can be in remembrance of survivors or people who passed away of colon cancer. The pieces will then be stitched together to create a quilt and can be presented at the local race. Donate the quilt to hospitals, or clinics in your area to hang up in their establishment. Each year you can add to the quilt or create a new one.
