Take Steps



Coping with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease or IBD) can be an extremely challenging and isolating journey. That is why the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation created Take Steps, a walk experience with events in cities across the country.


Take Steps brings communities together in a fun, family-friendly and supportive atmosphere that lets patients know they’re not alone. The Foundation’s largest fundraising campaign, Take Steps helps to accelerate the progress of breakthrough research and supports critical patient programs.


NEW in 2023: Join us at the newly reimagined Take Steps event experience in a city near you! Featuring a new look, new feel, and an incredible new walk day experience that brings the IBD patient journey to life, we can't wait to welcome you to Take Steps. Whether you're a patient, caregiver, or supporter, together we will celebrate and honor your unique journey as we head to the top of Mt. Remission and our ultimate goal: cures for Crohn’s disease & ulcerative colitis.


Find a Take Steps walk in your community and join us for this special event designed to empower and celebrate all those impacted by IBD.
