PHOENIX, Jan. 4, 2024 Colossal is excited to announce that over $9 MILLION has been raised from the 2023 Fab Over 40 Competition.

National Breast Cancer Foundation
The Fab Over 40 Competition operated as a fundraising campaign on behalf of DTCare, a nationally registered 501(c)(3) charity/charitable grantmaker.
