Our client, The Endoscopy Center at St. Mary (ECSM) kicked off National Colon Cancer Awareness month in conjunction with the Colon Cancer Alliance’s “Dress in Blue Day” on Friday, March 6. We staged the “Knockout Colon Cancer Carnival,” which took place in the St. Mary Medical Center cafeteria.
Patients, visitors, and colleagues enjoyed freshly popped popcorn, blue cotton candy, and blue water ice. In addition to the carnival treats, guests also enjoyed classic carnival games, including Whack-A-Mole and ring toss. Spokesperson former MLB World Series pitcher Tommy Greene signed autographs and alerted guests about the importance of screenings. ECSM distributed collateral materials including colon cancer awareness brochures from the CDC, ECSM brochures, and much more.
Donations for this Colon Cancer Alliance event totaled to $1,057.75. Of that total, $1,000 was donated by members of the Delaware Valley Road Runners Car Club.
