CBS News anchor Katie Couric was on the town bowling a couple of Wednesday nights ago, attending the “Strike Out Colon Cancer” event at 300 New York for the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance.  Ms. Couric, who brought her youngest daughter as her official date, showed her support to help eradicate the disease that claimed the life of her husband Jay Monahan  nine years ago.

Ms. Couric is a co-founder of the NCCRA which is dedicated to the eradication of colorectal cancer by promoting the importance of early medical screening and by funding research to develop better testes, treatments and ultimately, a cure.
