Take Steps

Someone you know suffers from Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, debilitating digestive diseases that are also known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). These diseases affect 1.6 million Americans, including 80,000 children. Walk with us in 2015 and help us get one step closer to cures.

As part of the Take Steps family, you'll raise critical dollars that fund our mission. From groundbreaking research to patient education and outreach programs, we're working harder and smarter to enhance the quality of life for patients and accelerate progress.

Take Steps supporters have helped fund research into the multiple factors that influence how IBD starts and how it progresses. This crucial research has revolutionized our understanding of IBD, and is already opening doors to new drug treatments and diagnostics. The great strides made by talented and hardworking researchers collaborating through our Microbiome and Genetics Initiatives are inspiring those who suffer from Crohn's and colitis to stay hopeful.

Get started today! Take Steps is a nationwide event in more than 140 communities across the country. Find a walk in your area. When you make a self-donation of $25, you'll get a great window decal to show your support. Raise $100 or more -- you'll join the ranks of Take Steps MVPs (Most Valued Participants) and receive an exclusive MVP t-shirt!
