Since 1906, volunteer groups have been committed to raising funds for the study and treatment of major diseases. These groups are known as the National Volunteer Organization (NVO). Much of the success of AMC Cancer Research Center (now known as University of Colorado Cancer Center Fund) can be credited to these selfless and tenacious volunteers who, by supporting AMC for over one hundred years, have created a heritage of courageous vision combined with spirit and hard work. From coast to coast, the NVO volunteers over the years have numbered in the thousands, working to raise funds for cancer prevention, control and research in Colorado as well as in their own communities. These dedicated volunteers have raised millions of dollars through fundraising activities and personal donations, earning them a permanent place of honor and esteem in the history of the University of Colorado Cancer Center Fund.
To honor the history of AMC and the impact of the NVO, we have installed a tribute wall in our new home at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado. We invite you to come visit and see the wall and the campus. You can also see photos and read about the wall here.
