Jeff Keith to be feted at Final Four

The CT Challenge and Founder Jeff Keith will be honored at the NCAA Men’s Final Four Lacrosse Championships on Saturday, May 25 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.
Buick, in partnership with the NCAA, selected Keith, a Fairfield resident, as part of its Human Highlight Campaign Reel, which honors former NCAA athletes who have had immeasurable impact on their communities through their charitable organizations.
On Saturday, Buick will host Keith and his guests and make an on-field presentation at halftime of the second semifinal game in special recognition of the positive impact the CT Challenge has had on the lives of cancer survivors throughout the country.
The Challenge’s Center for Survivorship in Southport is its primary support vehicle in aiding survivors throughout Fairfield County and the state.
The selection of the CT Challenge by Buick follows the release of the Buick Human Highlight Reel, which was featured on CBS Sports during the pre-game show of the 2013 NCAA Men’s Final Four Basketball Tournament in April.
Buick chose Keith for dedicating his life’s work in the fight against cancer and the impact that the CT Challenge has on the lives of thousands of cancer survivors.
Keith lost his leg to cancer at the age of 12 and went on to become an accomplished athlete and Division I lacrosse player at Boston College, graduating in 1984.
In 1985, Keith became the first cancer survivor and amputee to run across America.
In 2005, he founded the CT Challenge organization to empower cancer survivors to live healthier lives through new programs in exercise, nutrition and psychosocial support.
