Help us place 27,400 flags at the National Mall for Fight Colorectal Cancer's United in Blue, the first-ever installation in Washington, DC designed to spotlight colorectal cancer as a national priority. It is a visual representation of the more than 27,400 people under age 50 estimated to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2030, highlighting the need for us to fight for more: more urgency, more equity, more funding.

About the Installation:

  • Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) is the leading advocacy group in the country for colorectal cancer. We will be sponsoring the first-ever installation on the National Mall in Washington, D.C that honors the colorectal cancer community. This installation will take place from March 13-18, 2022. The installation will be a visual representation of the more than 27,400 people under the age of 50 estimated to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2030. It represents our community's desire for more research, more treatment options, more funding, and more lives saved. On March 13th, 2022, volunteers and advocates will help place 27,400 flags on the National Mall to kick off the week. We must fight for more, now. This installation is our stake in the ground to spotlight colorectal cancer as a national priority.

    We are dedicated to raising colorectal cancer awareness! Please fill out the form below to volunteer to be a part of the tribute. *This is an outdoor event, and we will follow CDC guidelines on masking and distancing.
