Thank you to everyone who supported the National Blue Hope Bash D.C. in 2023! We are thrilled to announce that the event raised nearly $1.3 million. This will significantly impact the colorectal cancer community, including continuing our efforts to educate the public about the importance of early detection and screening, providing support to those affected by colorectal cancer, and funding critical research to improve treatment options and find a cure.
