Dress in Blue Day is March 1, 2013!
March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and it kicks off on March 1 with the national "Dress in Blue Day."
We encourage everyone to dress in blue to promote colon cancer screening. Join us in spreading the word and saving lives! Dress in blue on March 1, and recruit your friends, family, coworkers, church, club and others to do the same!
Does your community or organization have something fun planned or interested in planning a Dress in Blue or other awareness event in March?
If so, let us know! We want to recognize all of our blue star champions and share ideas so others can get involved.
