Get started.

Host an Awareness Event

Want to host an awareness event? We can help!

Awareness events can be big or small. Some of the most common events take place at workplaces, schools, sports arenas, doctor’s offices and churches. The event can be all about colorectal cancer, or it can be part of a larger event, like a wellness fair for example. Your event can be anywhere you go that you want to make people aware of colorectal cancer!

Need some ideas? Check out photos from other local events.

Awareness Materials

Fight CRC has brochures, magazines, bracelets, posters, pins, temporary tattoos and more for you to give away at your event! Our literature covers the symptoms of colorectal cancer, risk factors and screening options. We have colorectal cancer clothing and other fun gear, too!

To get materials for your event, let us know what you’re hosting and we will be in touch! You can also buy t-shirts and gear in our online store.

Many events also make great fundraisers! It can be super simple – place one of our donation boxes at your workplace, another local business or on a welcome table at your event.

For other fundraising ideas, read our blog!

One Million Strong

One Million Strong is Fight Colorectal Cancer’s movement uniting the over one million survivors of colorectal cancer to get behind a cure and prevent future cases. As an advocate community, we set out to change the impact of colorectal cancer for millions of others. One Million Strong provides education, resources and tools to explain the disease is preventable with screening, and highly beatable and treatable if caught at an early stage. One Million Strong empowers survivors, caregivers and loved ones to share their stories, raise awareness, advocate for policy change and support research. We’re determined to stop the second-leading cause of cancer deaths from taking more lives.

Learn more and join One Million Strong.


Ambassador Program

Our Ambassador program is designed as a “step one” into Fight CRC. It’s for those who are raising so much awareness online, they’re ready to take the next step and get live, in-person training. Ambassadors are individuals impacted by colorectal cancer who become a “face” to the disease. They champion awareness by telling their stories and getting involved in advocacy. During training, they get information about how to represent Fight CRC, be an advocate, fundraise and support research. Ambassador applications open each June; Ambassador Training is held each August in Springfield, Mo.

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.
