10 Benefits Dear Friends, In late 2014 we were approached by a colon cancer survivor. A marathoner who, at 50, was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer during his first colonoscopy. The side effects of treatment made running difficult, so he took up cycling; riding over 60 miles with a local bicycling group after each round of chemo. It was on these rides, coupled with the desire to raise colon cancer awareness in his community, that Gale Fritsche of Allentown, PA, started thinking about a colon cancer awareness ride. A call or two (or a dozen) later, and the inaugural Tour de Tush® Bike Ride for Colon Cancer Awareness was launched in June 2015. Tour de Tush was a great opportunity for the Colon Cancer Coalition to move forward. By taking our successful Get Your Rear in Gear® event model, turning it on its head and into a bike ride, we are able

to reach many who may not hear the message in another way. This is also a great analogy for the current state of colon cancer screening, education, and awareness in our country. To continue to move the screening needle to 80% by 2018, all of us on the ground need to continuously change, adapt, and do something new to reach more people with the important realities of colon cancer screening. We need to keep building on success, tweaking the message, and rearranging the parts. Our work isn’t done, but we are steadily pushing towards the finish line. And we will be here until we can cross it together. Sincerely, Anne Carlson Executive Director | Colon Cancer Coalition

Wichita, KS Dear Friends, This summer I decided to knock something off my bucket list by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. My original plan to climb in 2003 was scuttled by my colon cancer diagnosis. In preparing to summit I made sure I had a Colon Cancer Coalition t-shirt and I even made a Colon Cancer Coalition flag to plant at the summit.

amazing staff. In 2015, $2.4 million was raised to help conquer colon cancer. There is so much more to do. But the only way we will get to where we want to be — to a place where colon cancer is eradicated as a killer of thousands of people — is to take one step at a time, and support each other.

Well, I made it. But in the exhaustion of the moment I forgot all about the plan for a photo. Grand ideas were replaced with taking one step at a time — forward, forward, forward — and simply making it if you can, encouraged by your climbing mates. Making some splashy statement was replaced by simply supporting each other.

Beating colon cancer is not about planting a flag, or making a splash. Instead, it is about taking small steps — forward, forward, forward. Together, we are making a difference. Thank you to our volunteers, sponsors, supporters, staff, and fellow board members.

The Colon Cancer Coalition has been taking one step at time since 2004. We are carried every step of the way by volunteers, survivors, caregivers and an

New in 2015!

Saturday, June 13, 2015, marked the inaugural Tour de Tush® bike ride for colon cancer awareness in Allentown, PA. The bike ride was the first event of its type put on by the Colon Cancer Coalition. It was a beautiful sunny day with 174 cyclists participating. ME. THE SIGNS AT THE EVENT SAID SCREEN AT AGE 50. I WAS 54. MY COLONOSCOPY CHANGED MY LIFE. A STAGE II DIAGNOSIS MEANT THERE WAS HOPE. NOW, I’M SURE I’LL SEE 90.

*Don’t Miss It *Don’t Miss It addresses the sobering truth that colorectal cancer can interrupt life as usual. Using a simple

asterisk above important life events, we can show in a brief, emotionally impactful way, that some terms and conditions may apply to life unless you know your risks and get screened.

*Don't Miss It debuted in the Boston "T" line in May, and was seen in New York City (Times Square), Indianapolis, and Watertown, SD, in 2015. It was then rolled out in additional markets in 2016. This award-winning campaign encourages a wide audience to raise awareness and "get screened" for this deadly, yet highly preventable cancer.

OBI Creative, the agency that worked with us to create the *Don't Miss It messaging won several industry awards for their work. Those recognitions include: Gold from the 2015 International MarCom Awards 2 - 2015 Gold Nebraska AAF Addy Awards 2 - 2015 Awards of Excellence and 1 Award of Merit from Nebraska PRSA A 2016 Pinnacle Award and 2 gold citations from AMA Omaha

Grants + Funded Programs Along with the Colon Cancer Coalition, our volunteer Get Your Rear in Gear® event directors help allocate funds raised to new and existing programs for colon cancer education, screening, prevention, and support in their community.

According to the Mayo Clinic, an estimated 3 of every 100 colon cancer diagnosis are the result of Lynch Syndrome, an inherited condition that increases risks for colon and many other cancers. “The National Lynch Syndrome Registry will enable us to increase genetic research while supporting patients who live with the insecurities of this inherited risk for colon and other cancers,” says David Dubin, Lynch Syndrome survivor and co-founder of AliveAndKickn. Anne Carlson (2nd from right) presents Robin, David, and Max Dubin from AliveAndKickn with a grant for the NATIONAL LYNCH SYNDROME REGISTRY.

About Us - Colon Cancer Coalition The Colon Cancer Coalition is a leading source for colon cancer education and awareness, encouraging screening for the nation’s No. 2 cancer killer: colon cancer. Because colon cancer is treatable when caught early, we encourage all people to get educated and get the appropriate screening. Funds raised through our signature Get Your Rear in Gear® and Tour de Tush™ national event series are granted back to the local community to increase screening and raise awareness. Millions of dollars have been granted by the Colon Cancer Coalition to programs that promote early detection, prevention, screening, and patient support services for this preventable disease. What started as one woman — in one community — reacting to the loss of her sister, has become a nationwide movement. What impact can you make in your community to prevent more people from dying of colon cancer?
