In honor of the American Cancer Society’s 80% by 2018 initiative, we invite you to join the Go Blue Campaign to raise awareness about colorectal cancer. The campaign’s goal is to have 80% of the population screened for colorectal cancer by 2018.

We ask you to participate and support this campaign by having your employees wear blue on March 4th, putting a poster in your store, or handing out pamphlets about 80% by 2018. Read more about other ways you can support Go Blue!
