Our Take Steps walks offer a wonderful day for family, friends and the IBD community to celebrate all of the hard work and dedication of our participants to raise funds towards our mission. Our walk events are filled with live music, food, kids’ entertainment, educational materials, and, of course, wonderful exposure for our corporate partners. 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 nearly $60 million to help further CCFA'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.
