In 2014, Lui Passaglia - former BC Lion, Canadian Football Hall-of-Famer and Canadian Sports Hall-of-Famer - was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer.
The diagnosis came as a complete shock for legendary CFL kicker.
Fortunately, Lui is now healthy and currently cancer-free and this experience has inspired him to share his story and raise funds to fight this disease.
Lui joined Colon Cancer Canada's Push for Your Tush walk/run and last year, in Vancouver alone, they raised over $50,000.
Lui, a former Notre Dame Juggler and SFU Clan player, is looking for the support of his amateur football family to help with his cause by joining his Push for Your Tush walk/run or by donating.
