It’s fair to say, we kicked some colon cancer butt last month! From our Nationwide Cancer Prevention Tour (the giant colon saw 30+ cities this month!) to unique fundraising initiatives (butt wipe, anyone?), advocacy & treatment milestones, the biggest Undy 5000 5K Run EVER, the first National Colon Cancer Survivor Day & blue photos galore, together we made a massive footprint.

And don’t forget to read up on how you can help keep the momentum going! Read more
