    Advocacy Event

    This is a two-day event. We will be on the Hill with other advocates to make sure that medical research is talked about as national priority when Members of Congress leave D.C. to campaign for the November elections.

    The first day will be a training session followed by a reception on Capitol Hill. The second day will begin with breakfast, followed by meetings with House and Senate offices. This event will then wrap up with a press conference which will consist of a senior executive, recognized and influential patient advocates, prominent extramural researchers, and Members of Congress.

    Stay up-to-date on this event and our advocates experience through the Fight CRC social media pages and blog.

    Join us as we celebrate Steve’s favorite pastime, a good ol' BBQ. We will be hosting a  BBQ competition while raising money for colorectal cancer research and awareness.

    Free admission, silent auction, BBQ sandwich sales, vintage baseball game between City of Carrollton and City of Farmers branch employees, in addition, we are hosting a One Million Strong March.

    As a family we lost due to lack of awareness of the newly discovered Lynch Syndrome, we are motivated to help others by spreading this awareness and raising money for research, so that our loss was not in vain.
