Every year, colorectal cancer will be diagnosed in nearly 100,000 Americans and more than half of those will die. Among men and women, it is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. Early detection can save lives.
Statistics tell us 60% of colorectal cancer deaths can be prevented with screening.
There are many stories and memories of those who fought bravely. Blue Ribbon Run participants honor the memory of those lost to the disease by helping to raise awareness and money for the Julie M. Brown and Christina Gianoplus Foundation.
