Take Steps

Take Steps is a family-friendly event where we celebrate the hard work and dedication of fundraising and supporting the IBD community. The Take Steps community consists of patients, loved ones, friends and supporters that EMPOWER and INSPIRE each other to continue the fight against these diseases. Take Steps offers the perfect opportunity to CONNECT with the greater IBD community.

By joining the Take Steps community, you will fundraise to support mission-critical research and patient support programs for the 1.6 million Americans living with IBD. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Take Steps and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) are dedicated to finding cures while providing patients and families the support they need until we do.
