Colorectal Cancer Canada hosts various fundraising events throughout the year which aim to increase awareness of key issues as well as support the goals of the organization. CCC depends on the generosity of its donors and sponsors in order to implement its projects.
Dress in Blue Day
The first Friday of March is Dress in Blue day, a campaign to raise awareness during Colorectal Cancer Month and part of an international movement to reach out to the thousands of families touched by the disease.
People dress in blue to show support and raise funds for the disease.
Each year Colorectal Cancer Canada (CCC) hosts a major fundraising gala that celebrates the outstanding work of CCC. This event enables us to carry out life-saving programs and helps patients across the country.
This year’s event takes place Thursday March 22nd, 2018 and will be a pleasure for the senses. From the sights of Salon 1861 to the sounds of live music to the aromas of our very own spice market, the event will be like no other. The evening will begin with a VIP cocktail followed by wine and food tastings at stations hosted by local restaurants. Food will be paired with renowned vintages for an unforgettable culinary experience.
Please join us in making the 8th Annual Gala a night our guests will revere.

The Bum Run is a unique 5km walk/run through downtown Toronto which takes place the last Sunday of April. It was founded by Dr. Ian Bookman, a gastroenterologist in Toronto, with the goal of raising awareness about how colorectal cancer screening can prevent the 95% of cancer deaths.
All funds raised by participants go directly to CCC’s awareness and patient support programs.
Join us at our next regularly scheduled BUM RUN so that you too can make a difference.
