Installation Open

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.

Why an Installation on the National Mall?

In only 7 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.
