Installation on Display

United in Blue is a two-week installation in D.C., creating a breathtaking, stunning, and somber visual reminder that in 2030, more than 27,400 people under age 50 are projected to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer. United in Blue casts a national spotlight on colorectal cancer and the urgent need to do so much more.

Participate in Something Big!

Volunteer on March 9 to help place 27,000 flags at the United in Blue installation, now in its third year on the National Mall. Each flag represents one of the more than 27,000 lives of people ages 20-49 that will be devastated by a colorectal cancer diagnosis in 2030.

Tribute Wall

Our Tribute Wall will be displayed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. from March 10-22. We will showcase the lives of relentless champions from across the country. Together, we have to fight for more research, more treatment options, and more awareness. Your donation will support our Path to a Cure.

March 6 is the deadline for having your tribute displayed in D.C. from March 10-22, 2024.

This wall is a celebration and an opportunity to honor and remember the Relentless Champions from our community who have touched our lives. As champions and advocates, we are charged with honoring and sharing the stories of people impacted by colorectal cancer.

Personally sponsor a row of flags in honor or memory of a loved one at the United in Blue installation! Family and friends now have the opportunity to sponsor a row of flags in honor or memory of a loved one for $300.

A small sign next to the row you sponsor will indicate, “This row is dedicated (in honor or memory) of __________________ sponsored by ___________________.”

Why an Installation on the National Mall?

In only 6 years, colorectal cancer is predicted to be the leading cause of cancer deaths for those between ages 20-49. We can change this, by investing in fighting colorectal cancer today.

We must fight for more, now. This installation is our stake in the ground to spotlight colorectal cancer as a national priority. United in Blue is on display while advocates are meeting with members of Congress and highlights the need for us to fight for more: more urgency, more equity, more funding.
