Fundraise and save lives

Fundraising through the Walk to End Colon Cancer mean more screenings, care, and cures for families and supporters of those impacted by colorectal cancer. In the fight against colorectal cancer, every dollar counts.

You don’t need special skills to be a rock star fundraiser – you just need to share your story of why you are walking and inspire your friends and family to give. In fact, we bet you’ll be surprised how many people will want to support you – you just have to ask! Check out the tips and ideas below to help you meet and exceed your fundraising goal.

Tips to getting started

We know fundraising can be a bit intimidating, whether you’re an expert or a rookie. So, we put together these tips and tricks to help get your initiatives off the ground and to jumpstart your fundraising success.

  • Personalize your fundraising page through the participant center.

  • Donate to yourself to get the party started. You’ll even receive Alliance swag for being a self-donor!

  • Ask three family members, friends and colleagues to sponsor you for $20 each.

  • Share your fundraising pages on social media. Tag us at #WalktoEndCRC and #WalkLoud and we'll tag you back! We're big fans of social outreach!
