Become a DIYnamo
Are you a Do-It-Yourselfer, eager to support Alliance in your own way? Join our Nation of Allies as a DIYnamo! We'll work with you to turn your passion or hobby into a fundraiser to help end colorectal cancer in our lifetime. Check out our toolkits and get started today—because tomorrow can’t wait.
Your lifetime risk of being diagnosed with colorectal cancer is 1 in 24. Turn that grim statistic on its head by committing to raise $250 from 24 friends in 24 hours.
Ask for donations in lieu of gifts and any event can become a memorable fundraiser. Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, or graduations to advance the Alliance’s mission.
Community / workplace
Gather with friends, neighbors, or co-workers for any kind of get together, and add a cover fee that goes toward our life-saving programs.
Turn fitness into fundraising. Running, golfing, spinning—anything you love can make an impact and raise awareness of colorectal cancer.

Why we need more DIYnamos
This year, more than 147,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer—a preventable disease that is fatal for more than 50,000 people every year. This fact drives us to unite as allies in efforts to support patients and families, to increase funding for research, and to save as many lives as possible. During the next few years, we’ve set key goals to ensure we take considerable strides in these efforts. We need your help to achieve them—because tomorrow can’t wait.™
