Wilmington, Take Steps to Find a Cure!
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED - SEE YOU AT THE WALK!
If you still need to register, please visit the "Day of Registration" line at the Registration Tent. Donations will be accepted at the walk as well as online and offline until the end of the year.
Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis is CCFA’s largest fundraising event having touched over 240,000 people and raised nearly $60M to help further the Foundation’s mission.
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. In 2014, more than 70,000 people joined us nationwide, helping us raise $11M.
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.
Thank you to our Platinum Sponsor

Fundraising Tip: Have You Been Matched?
Matching-gifts are an easy way to significantly increase the
impact of your contributions. Many companies around the country
donate funds to match gifts made by their employees to non-profit
organizations. Some even match gifts made by retirees and spouses!
Ask your company today if it offers a matching-gift program, and request a
matching-gift form. Send us the completed and signed form via mail, email or fax and we will do the rest.
Did You Receive a Check or Cash Donation?
Please mail all offline donations to the local chapter and they will be posted to your fundraising page within one week. Please convert all cash to a check - do not mail cash.
