Thanks to everyone who attended our Kickoff Celebration!

For those who couldn't make it, we missed you but know you were with us in spirit!  We had a great time and got to meet our

Honored Heroes and view a couple of new videos from the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.

Here is the brand new Take Steps video featuring our neighbors from Fairfield County and Boston

And here is an exciting update about CCFA's microbiome research initiative which donations raised through Take Steps are helping to fund!

Team Shot Unforgetabowels

Our Take Steps walks offer a wonderful day for family, friends and the community to celebrate all of the efforts that have been put forth in raising 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 over 100,000 people and raised close to $40 million to help further CCFA’s mission. 

80 cents of every dollar raised goes towards breakthrough research, public and professional education, and patient support services in communities across the nation.

Register today. Join thousands of others in the fight against digestive diseases.
