Omaha Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis

Omaha, 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. 

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.



Riley - Honored Hero

My name is Riley and I am this years local Crohn's and Colitis hero of the year. I was diagnosed right before my 8th birthday with Crohn's Disease. From the beginning I have never let Crohn's bring me down, in fact I want other kids like me to know that you can shake your fist at IBD and stand up for yourself and your body! Sometimes I struggle and have pain, but I know with my friends, family, and doctors help I can get through it. I am now in 4th grade and enjoy playing golf, running around, hanging out with my friends, and playing video games. Thanks for the honor of being hero of the year, I will see you all at this years Take Steps Walk!



Be our guest and come experience the Omaha Botanical Gardens AND learn more about CCFA, fundraising tips, meet other team captains, this year’s honored hero, loud & proud members, and more!
