C.A.S.U.A.L. Day, set for Thursday, March 28, is a dress down day to raise awareness for colorectal cancer in Northeast Pennsylvania. On this day, participants dress casual while wearing a specially designed pin, silicone wrist-band and/or t-shirt.
The focus of this awareness campaign is to have a casual conversation about colon cancer. All proceeds from the event stay in NEPA and go towards the Cancer Institute efforts to raise awareness and support to support colorectal cancer prevention, early detection education and screenings.
