Haze is a documentary about the death of Gordie Bailey, who died on September 17, 2004 at a fraternity house on the campus of the University of Colorado after passing out from a night of drinking. No one called for help in time to save his life.
His parents started The Gordie Foundation to raise awareness of the epidemic of alcohol abuse and hazing on campuses, as well as to educate students about the need to call for help to save lives. The foundation distributes materials to teach teenagers what symptoms can indicate a need for medical help. Statistics show that a student dies from alcohol abuse almost every five hours.
