LEAD FROM BEHIND — founded by Brooks Bell, powered by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, and created in partnership with Ryan Reynolds’ Maximum Effort & Chrysi Philalithes — is an initiative on a mission to make colon cancer famous.
The purpose is to help people learn that colon cancer is The Preventable Cancer. It’s the second deadliest cancer in America and rising among young people. And it doesn’t have to be, because it's preventable. Learn more and let your behind be the leader it was born to be at LeadFromBehind.org.
We are pleased to announce the Blue Hope Bash, chaired by Avi Benaim and Karen Paris and Estee and Elliott Portnoy, makes its full return on Saturday, October 29, 2022. Please mark your calendars for an in-person and all-out Bash at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, DC.
Join a #NationOfAllies as we move forward in the mission to end colorectal cancer. This year’s Blue Hope Bash will inspire as we celebrate one another, and our unstoppable determination to screen, care, and cure.
National Blue Hope Bash
When the screening age was lowered from 50 to 45 on May 18, 2021, the Alliance and its incredible network of volunteer advocates rose up to help ensure screening coverage for those facing the rising risk of colorectal cancer — 20 million people between the ages of 45 and 49.
Help us to continue the critical work of spreading awareness— if you’re 45 or older, it's time to get screened! #TomorrowCantWait

Most people don't know that colorectal cancer is the second deadliest cancer in the United States or that it's highly preventable — and that’s why we’re turning up the volume on this disease.
It’s time to stop the silence, reject the stigma, and cancel the killer. Every step brings us closer to ending this disease. It’s time to #WalkLoud!
Your participation means more prevention programs for those at risk, more expert support for patients, and more funding for innovative research.
Register, fundraise, start a team, join a team or walk as an individual – because tomorrow can’t wait!

Blue Hope Bash Denver is a part of a premier fundraising series of the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. These events occur in cities across the country and unite individuals and key sponsors at inspirational gatherings to honor patients and survivors, and remember those lost to colorectal cancer.
Screen, Care, and Cure are the three pillars guiding the Alliance’s work and are instrumental in Changing the Odds to help end colorectal cancer in our lifetime. This year’s event will focus on increasing awareness of colorectal cancer and advancing the odds in our favor.
The evening will feature cocktails, dinner, guest speakers, dancing, an auction, and interactive games of chance. Learn more and get your tickets today!
