Due tothe severe weather forecast for this weekend, including the possibility of dangerous flooding conditions in the Columbia area, we are saddened to announce that the Take Steps Columbia walk has been cancelled.
We will not be rescheduling the walk, however, we do plan to hold a Take Steps Columbia Social Celebration sometime during the next few weeks so that all teams, participants and sponsors have a chance to celebrate and turn in any funds raised. Please check back for updates on the upcoming Social Celebration.
Columbia, Take Steps to Find a Cure!
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.
