March 1st, 2013 Dress in Blue Day

February 21, 2013

Join us on Friday, March 1st, 2013 in dressing in BLUE for Colon Cancer Awareness!

Dress in Blue Day began in March of 2006 as a local event in Seattle. In an effort to raise awareness of colon cancer and the importance of having your colon checked, Colon Cancer Alliance volunteer and colon cancer survivor, Anita Mitchell worked with her children’s school to coordinate a recognition day. Each student donated $1 to colon cancer research and wore blue to raise awareness about the disease.

Today, Dress in Blue Day is a nationwide event that raises awareness about colon cancer and its prevention. Communities, schools, and workplaces across the country encourage people wear blue to stress the importance of getting your colon checked early. For more information on Dress in Blue Day, visit
