Atlanta, Take Steps to Find a Cure!

Register to Walk!

The Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis walk is the nation’s largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. Many patients have only ever met a handful of other patients suffering from IBD – this is a unique opportunity to meet hundreds of IBD patients, families, and supporters from your own backyard. There is no fee to register and no team is too big or small!

Walk day is an incredible experience for all to celebrate the efforts that have been put forth in raising funds toward our mission.  It is a day filled with live music, food, kids’ activities, educational materials, and of course wonderful exposure for our corporate partners.

Take Steps spreads awareness about IBD throughout our community while raising crucial funds to fuel the mission critical research, education and support services of CCFA. As we continue to strive to surpass our local fundraising goal of $300,000, many of you have been hard leading our efforts through your team and individual fundraising!


THANK YOU!  Thank you to everyone who was a part of the amazing event on Saturday, May 2nd!  We had beautiful weather, an fun crowd and raised critical funds for our mission.

A special THANK YOU to our MVP (Most Valuable Participant)- those who raised $1,000 or more!

The MVP Program was created to recognize top teams and individuals going above and beyond to provide hope, inspire action and find cures through fundraising efforts and outreach!
