March Awareness Month - Dress in Blue Day !

National Dress in Blue Day, is a day dedicated to promoting awareness for colorectal cancer, Canada’s second leading cause of cancer deaths.

Participating in Dress in Blue Day will support the CCAC’s many efforts to spread knowledge of a disease that has taken far too many lives, simply because too few people are willing to talk about it. We know that awareness can spark discussion and subsequently steps towards getting screened.

Taking part in Dress in Blue Day is easy ! To do so, select any day during the month of March (Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month) and encourage your family, school or workplace to do the same.

Although there is no cost to participate in this event, we encourage everyone to donate whatever they can as even a few dollars can make a big difference. Please note that donations over $10.00 will receive a charitable receipt.

Why do we dress in blue and not in another color ?

Blue is the official color of colorectal cancer awareness and the color of the colorectal cancer ribbon and bracelet.

Where does the money go ?

The proceeds raised from National Dress in Blue will benefit the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada’s many awareness, education, support and advocacy initiatives.

Awareness & Education : The CCAC carries out a wide variety of awareness and education events throughout the year to increase the profile of colorectal cancer in Canada and educate the public.

Support : As a patient-based organization, we understand the needs of those diagnosed with colorectal cancer and their families. Compassion, knowledge and understanding are offered through support groups across the country, connecting patients, survivors, and caregivers.

Advocacy : The CCAC works to inform key decision-makers of the two biggest concerns for colorectal cancer prevention and care in Canada : nation-wide screening and patient access to effective medical treatments.

More details to follow as event approaches.
