According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the United States. Every year over 140,000 people are diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer. Every year, over 50,000 die from this disease. Recent advances have significantly contributed to improving screening and treatment, and have resulted in a growing population of colorectal cancer survivors. We are making progress!

Please convince others to register! We are on track to do way better than last year, but we need your help. Here are some suggestions of other people you can convince to join you: relatives, friends, neighbors, strangers, barista at Starbucks, long lost twin, Uncle Joey from Full House.

Looking forward to seeing you all!
