Today is DRESS IN BLUE DAY! Together, let’s show our support to those affected by colorectal cancer. Share your photos using #DressinBlueDay #ColorectalCancerAwarenessMonth

On Dress in Blue Day, and throughout Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, you can help raise awareness about the second most common cancer in Canada. Today, and all throughout the month, we encourage families, businesses and organizations to dress in blue to show support for those touched by colorectal cancer, and to also share important information on how a healthy lifestyle and effective screening can save lives.

Why Go Blue?

Dress in Blue Day is a good opportunity to engage in an activity that raises awareness about colorectal cancer prevention, while celebrating survivors and remembering loved ones lost too soon. In addition, organizing a fundraiser in your community forges stronger bonds between friends and neighbors while supporting the Colorectal Cancer Canada mission. We are the country’s leading colorectal cancer not for profit patient organization dedicated to colorectal cancer awareness and education, supporting patients and their families and advocating on their behalf.

How to Go Blue?

• Ask friends and families to show their support by wearing blue
• Hold a contest for the most creative blue outfits
• Distribute colorectal cancer awareness materials
• Decorate your home or workplace with blue lights and blue accents
• Share on social media why this cause matters to you
