It seems crazy that colorectal cancer is PREVENTABLE! We must keep raising awareness to save lives. We talk about colorectal cancer nonstop hoping someone will listen and decide to get screened.
If you’re passionate about colorectal cancer awareness, you’re in the right place. We believe great awareness leads to meaningful action. Let’s join forces and raise awareness together!
Join the One Million Strong Community
We refer to our community of fighters as “One Million Strong.” This powerful group is made up of patients, survivors, caregivers, friends and medical professionals. They’ve all decided to go public with their stories and post them on our blog.
Stories on our blog get the attention of other patients searching the internet for hope, as well as reporters looking for people to interview about the subject. Joining One Million Strong is a GREAT first step to getting involved at Fight CRC.Meet the One Million Strong
Post a #StrongArmSelfie to Social Media
A “#StrongArmSelfie” is a photo of yourself flexing your bicep posted on social media with the hashtag in the caption. Bonus points if it’s a true #selfie and you take the picture yourself! Take a selfie, an “usie” or a group photo. Let’s see your strength!
When you post a #StrongArmSelfie you’re showing support for our community of fighters. It’s also an awareness tool that gets people thinking about colorectal cancer.Get Involved with #StrongArmSelfie
Be a Social Media Champion
Social media is an incredible way to raise awareness. We’re always looking for champions to share content and spread the word. During our events, we look for active online users to help us. Make sure you follow us @FightCRC.
Social media champions share our content, tag us in content we should see and share information to raise awareness. We have several prevention resources that can help you share the knowledge and encourage others to get screened!
Occasionally we need volunteers to help with social media during our events. Check out our current volunteer opportunities.

Host an Awareness Event
Want to host an awareness event? It’s easy! Think of who you know that needs to know more about colorectal cancer prevention. Then, plan your event! Many common places for awareness events include workplaces, churches, businesses, schools and doctor’s offices.
If you’d like help planning an awareness event, please let us know.
Sparks of Strength Luminary Ceremony
Sparks of Strength is an easy event you can plan to raise awareness (and money if you’d like). It can be hosted locally in your city or town. Workplaces and schools can host them, as well as neighborhoods and families.
We provide help with planning the event and can even send you the supplies you need. Learn more about Sparks of Strength and how to host a luminary ceremony.
