Thanks to the lobbying efforts of the Canadian Colorectal Cancer Association (CCAC), Canadians across the country now recognize the month of March as “National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month” to honor all those affected by colorectal cancer.
According to the CCAC:
“Last year alone, an estimated 26,100 Canadians were diagnosed with colorectal cancer. One in 12 men and one in 14 women are expected to develop colorectal cancer during their lifetime.
Despite the fact that colorectal cancer is Preventable, Treatable, and Beatable, it remains the second leading cancer killer in our nation. It does not discriminate against sex nor age. In past generations it was a disease more commonly found in individuals 50 years and over. However, statistics now show that more young people are being diagnosed, particularly those with Lynch syndrome.”
Although Giants Head Grind isn’t until May 20 this year, we wanted to honor National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month by extending our Early Bird Draw to March 30!
