To encourage all to get screened and prevent colorectal cancer, Fight CRC is a proud partner of the national “80% by 2018” initiative.

“80% by 2018” is a National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable initiative in which over a thousand organizations have committed to eliminating colorectal cancer as a major public health problem. Together we are working toward the shared goal of reaching 80% of adults aged 50 and older screened for colorectal cancer by 2018.

The National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, an organization co-founded by the American Cancer Society and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is using March, National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, to rally organizations behind this shared goal.

Fight Colorectal Cancer is one of the many organizations committed to this national screening goal.
