National Dress in Blue Day is the colon cancer community’s day to unite for a future free of colon cancer! We’re excited to lead the charge and provide you with all the resources and support you need to knock out colon cancer, honor a loved one and get people screened.

This year’s Dress in Blue Day was on March 3rd, 2017.

How Did It Start?

It all began with Anita Mitchell, Colon Cancer Alliance volunteer and Colon Cancer Stars founder. Anita, who was battling stage IV colon cancer and lost a close friend and father to the disease, saw a need to bring greater awareness to a cancer not many people wanted to discuss.

In 2006, she worked with her children’s school to coordinate a recognition day with incredible success. In 2009, Anita brought the Dress in Blue Day concept to the Colon Cancer Alliance. Together, we took the program nationwide!
