New guidelines from the United States Preventive Services Task Force state that all average-risk people aged 45 and above should begin screening for colorectal cancer. Lowering the recommended screening age from 50 to 45 will impact more than 15 million people who are between the ages of 45 and 49 years old. These guidelines will save lives with earlier screening.
The Walk to End Colon Cancer is a family friendly, hope-filled fundraising event in 15 cities open to all ages. And we’re including a 5k walk and 1-mile turnaround to make it inclusive for all abilities. It’s a chance for anyone who’s been affected by colorectal cancer to come find strength and support, collectively.
Today’s support for early detection and research means more tomorrows with loved ones. Register, fundraise and join a nation of allies that are committed to seeing the end to colorectal cancer in our lifetime. Start a team, join a team or walk as an individual – because tomorrow can’t wait.
