Can We Talk about Strike Out Cancer? March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and to celebrate, HCB2’s Strike Out Cancer returned for its 5th year!
On Tuesday, March 5, 2019 @ Bowl America Southwest, five Chesterfield County high schools battled on the lanes as they raised awareness and funds for local efforts in colorectal cancer prevention. As diagnosis of colorectal cancer is rising in the 20-34 year old population, it’s imperative to bring students education about symptoms, family history and screening options. These students are then encouraged to bring the information into their homes and discuss with their loved ones who most likely are at the age for routine screening. The event is a win-win on many levels!
