C.A.S.U.A.L. Day (Colon cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) is a dress down day held at the end of March to raise awareness about colon cancer in northeast Pennsylvania and spread the word about the importance of screening and early detection. Participants dress “casual” while wearing a specially designed pin and/or t-shirt.

Through the generosity of One Point’s distribution system and staff, more than 5 thousand t-shirts and pins were ordered, packed, and delivered to participating businesses and organizations across northeast Pennsylvania for C.A.S.U.A.L. Day.  One Point has been a partner with the Cancer Institute since 2004.

The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute, a local non-profit, has been easing the burden of cancer across the region for more than twenty years.  Proceeds from C.A.S.U.A.L. Day benefit Cancer Institute efforts to raise colorectal cancer awareness and support colorectal cancer screenings for low income, uninsured, and underinsured individuals in northeast Pennsylvania.
