Dress in Blue Day is March 5
Dress in Blue Day 2021
What? Dress in Blue Day lets allies everywhere join our mission to end colorectal cancer. By wearing blue, you bring awareness to this disease and support our work — as well as honor all who are impacted by colorectal cancer.
When? Dress in Blue Day is Friday, March 5. All of March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Why? In 2021, an estimated 149,500 people will be diagnosed with this highly preventable disease. They will join more than 1.4 million colorectal cancer patients and survivors living today. We go blue for them, their families, and their community.
When it comes to preventing colorectal cancer, your voice is the most important. We’ve got you covered with pre-written social media posts and images. Just click and share the posts found here — it has never been easier to raise awareness!
