Brooklyn Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis

Brooklyn, Take Steps to Find a Cure!

Register to Walk!...84% to goal, there is still time to fundraise and donate!

Help us reach our goal of $86,600 by continuing to fundraise and donate through December 1st! We are only $14,000 from our goal. Many of you got a late start this year so use this opportunity to still reach your personal fundraising and awareness goals. Over $.80 from every dollar raised goes directly back to fund mission critical research, programs and services.

Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis is CCFA's largest fundraising event and the nation's only walk dedicated to finding a cure for digestive diseases. Participants raise funds throughout the year to find a cure and come together to celebrate the steps taken when no American has to suffer with digestive diseases and Crohn's or colitis. A cure is within our reach yet we need you.

The 2013 event will take place on Sunday, October 13th in the Oriental Pavilion (previously held in Bartel Lot) in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Take Steps Walk is in its third season and is expecting around 650 community participants and is set to raise just under $100,000. While this event is still very new to the community, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are sadly not. Statistically, 1 in 200 Americans have Crohn’s or colitis therefore an estimated 12,650 Brooklyn residents are of the 1.4 million Americans affected by these diseases. It costs America 2.2 billion dollars a year to manage these disease and with 70,000 new cases annually diagnosed, that number is rising. The CCFA is working tirelessly to find cures for these debilitating diseases and we are proud to share that .82 cents from every dollar raised is put directly into furthering our mission to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.Register today
