Get Up There is a public awareness movement, fundraiser and event to raise the awareness in Nova Scotia about Colorectal Cancer. The mission is to raise the awareness for the prevention and reduce the stigma associated with the colorectal screening.
Having raised over $300,000 since 2009, Get Up There is coming strong for it's 8th annual summit. Our work is a long way away from done. Colorectal cancer continues to be the second leading cause of cancer deaths among Nova Scotians (and 1st among males). Every day one Nova Scotian will die from a disease that if detected in the early stages is 90% preventable.
