C.A.S.U.A.L Day to fight colorectal cancer
February 15. 2013 9:47AM
Colon and rectal cancers are one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers in areas of Northeastern Pennsylvania, with incidence rates about 18% higher than the United States average. By getting your organization or business involved in C.A.S.U.A.L. Day, you can potentially save the lives of friends, co-workers, and family by raising awareness of proper screening guidelines and preventative measures.
Individuals and businesses interested in participating in C.A.S.U.A.L. Day can do so by selecting someone to serve as a team captain. Team captains will be in charge of ordering and distributing this yearâ??s gold C.A.S.U.A.L. t-shirts for $15, and pins, for $5.
On March 29 dress C.A.S.U.A.L., as determined by your workplace or school, and spread the word about colorectal cancer prevention and screening.
All proceeds from C.A.S.U.A.L. Day support the ongoing efforts by the Cancer Institute to raise awareness about colorectal cancer risk factors and the importance of screening.
