5 WEEKS TO WALK dAY!!
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.
The Rockland Take Steps Walk is held in the iconic Boulders Stadium! We have the entire stadium to ourselves for the morning to bring the community together in celebration of the steps taken towards raising awareness and funds to find cures! We are expecting around 400 community supporters of patients, families, and companies. The morning will be filled with DJ entertainment, kid's activities, patient resources and materials, team building opportunities as well as a 2 mile walk around the concourse of the stadium and onto the FIELD!!
Most importantly, this is your opportunity to meet hundreds of other patients and supporters from the local Rockland IBD community. You are not alone, the walk is your chance to get connected! In 2014, more than 70,000 people joined us nationwide, helping us raise $11M!
Register today in the fight against digestive diseases. $.82 cents of every dollar raised goes towards breakthrough research, public and professional education, and patient support services in communities across the nation.
Decal Don, How it works?
Make a self-donation today of $25.00 (or more) and you will be rewarded with a Take Steps Decal or as we'd like to call it Decal Don. Many patients suffer in silence but it's up to us to make their voices heard. Help us change that FACT! Register today for the 2015 Rockland Take Steps Walk and make a self-donation of $25 and you will receive a window decal to place in your car or other publicly visible place. Be a part of making a difference to those who suffer in silence.
Next Steps - Help us raise awareness!
Take a photo with your “Decal Don” (think Flat Stanley) and share on social media. Don't forget to tag us with #decaldon. Let's show the world your team’s commitment to the fight against digestive diseases. Together we will find a cure!
FUNDRAISING TIP/MATCHING GIFTS: 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. A dollar-for-dollar match is common, and some companies will even contribute up to two or three dollars for each dollar an employee gives. Some even match gifts made by retirees and spouses!
So what are you waiting for? 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.
