Ann Arbor Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis

Ann Arbor, Take Steps to Find Cures

Register to Walk!

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. 

82 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.

HOW MUCH IS IT TO WALK?  There are no registration or entry fees because we want Take Steps to be accessible to anyone who wishes to Walk with us, however..... Take Steps is a vital fundraising program that relies on fundraising support from every participant.  We encourage EVERYONE to help in the fundraising efforts and collect donations under their own name.  Our goal is for 100% fundraising participation from every walker.  Please help us reach that goal.

Registered participants may make a "self donation" when the register and promote the event and their fundraising goal to friends, family and coworkers.  While many will exceed this amount, it's suggested that each participant raise at least $25 for CCFA. We can't find the cures without the fundraising efforts from EVERYONE! 

WHO SHOULD REGISTER?  Every person who is walking with us should register on this website.  There is a waiver associated with each registration, which is required.  Help us plan for a successful event by registering EVERY PERSON on the team.  Be sure to answer all the questions, including shirt size and ages!
