With communities nationwide, Push for Your Tush has raised over $5.4 million dollars to date and continues to grow to support research, education, awareness and patient support. Held annually, this community oriented event provides a fun, family friendly atmosphere, where survivors are celebrated, the lost are honoured, and supportive communities grow all while raising vital funds for both local initiatives and national research. Why Push? Because YOU can! Because colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men, and third in women. Because every day in Canada an average of 73 people are diagnosed and 26 succumb to the disease. Because colon cancer is preventable in many cases and highly treatable when caught early. Push for Your Tush raises awareness and funds to save lives. It unites people who have been affected and provides a community of shared experience. It breaks the isolation, removes the embarrassment and starts a conversation. We need to talk about our Tush.
