Take Steps

Walk for Cures

“Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis” is the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's largest fundraising event dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the 1.6 million American adults and children affected by Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis—that’s one out of every 200 people!

The funds you raise through Take Steps will help support patient programs, enhance professional education efforts, and propel critical research for cures. Since its inception, Take Steps has successfully connected more than 120,000 patients, families, and businesses in the community and raised more than $75,000,000 to support the Foundation. 

Take Steps works to EMPOWER our patients and their families to make informed decisions about their own healthcare. 

Take Steps works to INSPIRE our patients and their families, providing hope for better treatments and cures. 

Take Steps works to CONNECT the community so that no one ever has to feel alone in their IBD journey. 

In 2018, we will walk in more than 110 local communities across the country and work to raise more than $11 million to continue our critical work. Walk as an individual or gather your friends, family, and co-workers to form a team. Registration is simple. Find a walk near you to get started.
