Third Party Events
These are volunteer-led fundraisers that benefit the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. Throughout the year we have people climbing Mt. Rainier, sailing the Strait of Juan De Fuca, rocking out at the Showbox, playing music in the park, and much more. If you have idea on how you can help the Foundation, contact email@example.com.
Volunteer Committees and Opportunities
Volunteers make us the successful Foundation it is. We have planning committees for Take Steps, the Benefit Luncheon, and our Flag Football tournament and we would love to have you join us. Looking for less of a commitment? We need office and event day volunteers as well. Click here to view all of our volunteer opportunities. Contact Ainsley Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many companies (Microsoft, Starbucks, Bank of America, to name a few) will match your contributions! Contact your HR department to find out if your company has a matching gift program. If so, look up the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. You could be doubling or tripling your commitment to finding a cure!

Talk About Us
Follow us on Twitter @CCfdnNW! Awareness of IBD and the Foundation are crucial to increasing the quality of life for patients.
Camp Oasis is a co-ed residential summer camp for youth with IBD entering grades 2-12 in the fall. Held the last week of June each year, Camp Oasis is held at Camp Colman in the south Puget Sound and is open to youth from our five-state region. Check out camp details online or contact Kathleen at email@example.com.
We will #walkforcures this year to EMPOWER and INSPIRE patients and their families to live their fullest lives and continue our fight for cures. By joining the Take Steps community, you will fundraise to support mission-critical research and patient support programs for the 3.1 million Americans living with IBD. Walk as an individual or gather your friends, family, and co-workers to form a team. Learn more and register for one of our local walk events in Portland, Alaska or Western Washington (Seattle).
