spin4 crohn's & colitis cures
Thank you to everyone who participated in our spin4 crohn's & colitis cures event on November 12, 2016. The event was a huge success and we raised over $55,000 to fund the Foundation's mission!


Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis is a family-friendly community walk dedicated to raising awareness and mission-critical funds for cures for digestive diseases. In the past five years alone, we succeeded in bringing together more than 240,000 people and raised more than $60 million to help further the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's mission. More than 80 cents of every dollar raised goes towards breakthrough research, public and professional education, and patient support services in communities across the nation. Our Take Steps walks offer a wonderful day for family, friends, and the IBD community to celebrate. These festivals are filled with live music, food, kids’ entertainment, educational materials, and wonderful exposure for our corporate partners.
