Cornhole For A Cause

June 5, 2018

Country singer Craig Campbell hosted his 6th Annual Celebrity Cornhole Challenge today which serves as one of the unofficial kick-off events for CMA Fest. The cornhole challenge brought out fans and a variety of stars including Lindsey Ell, Jerrod Niemann, Russell Dickerson, LOCASH, the Cadillac Three, Walker Hayes and NASCAR driver Scott Lagasse to name a few.

But the day isn’t just about tossing bags. Campbell created the event to raise money and awareness for FIGHT CRC (Fight Colorectal Cancer), a nonprofit organization working to increase awareness, education and research on colorectal cancer – the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among adults in the U.S.

It’s a personal cause for Campbell whose father died of the disease at the age of 36 - when Craig was just 11-years-old.

“To say I’m excited about this year’s celebrity cornhole challenge would be a huge understatement,” shared Campbell on his website. “It’s hard to believe this is year six! We’re hoping to beat the $180,000 we raised last year, so we’re pulling out all the stops and will have a few returning celebrities and some rookies playing to help Fight CRC. Seeing all the fans come out in support, means the world to me!”
