The Chimmy Challenge was the brain child of 16 year old Camryn Colahan and her family. During Cam's own treatment journey she was graciously honored and supported by an unbelievable army of athletes and friends from schools and club teams throughout Northern Ohio. She and her mom, Aimee, would frequently discuss how to turn that awesome momentum into something bigger to benefit not just Cam, but countless others facing pediatric cancer battles just like her. Athletes may be fierce competitors on the court, but when adversity rises, they band together to support and raise each other up.

The two main goals of the Chimmy Challenge are to raise awareness for pediatric cancer, and to raise much needed funding for research efforts to develop new treatment options for children.
