Tampa, Take Steps to Find a Cure!

Register to Walk!



The Crohn’s & Colitis Take Steps Walk is one of CCFA’s largest events committed to finding cures for digestive diseases. Our walks offer an incredible day for family, friends and the community to come together in celebration of all their hard work and dedication to our mission.

Our community consists of patients, loved ones, friends and supporters that empower and inspire each other to fight these diseases. Each year we connect with our communities as we fundraise for cures and celebrate our hard work together in supporting our patients.

To date, Take Steps has raised more than $60 million to fund mission-critical research and patient support programs. More than 80 cents of each dollar raised goes directly to funding this mission. Find a walk in your local community and join thousands of others Taking Steps for cures.

Here are a few proven tips to help you have a rewarding and successful walk experience with your team! 

Step 1: Set a realistic and meaningful goal for your team. There is no cost to register and no fundraising minimum. It is up to you to set a personally meaningful and significant goal for you and your team. Communicate that goal to your team members and work together to achieve it dividing the goal among each other.

Step 2: Write Personal Fundraising Letters & Emails. Compose a passionate and individualized letter about why you are walking and how people can support your fundraising efforts. 

Step 3: Recruit Participants. Ask your friends, neighbors, family members and co-workers to join your team and help you to spread awareness and reach your team’s fundraising goal through their contacts.

Step 4: Raise Money. The national fundraising average per person is $250 encourage your each of your of your team members to beat the national average.  Approach the businesses you frequent, or even better, ask your own company.  Lead by example, by making the first donation your own. 

Step 5: Create Excitement. Design a team t-shirt or a unique team name, post flyers in your neighborhood, and share information on social media.

Step 6: Celebrate Your Team’s Success.  Attend the Walk. Take a team photo. Eat, drink and celebrate raising funds to find cures for Crohn's and colitis!
