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 protected].
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!

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 or Western Washington (Seattle).
