Brooklyn, 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.

Meet our 2015 Pediatric Patient Honored Hero, Eitan Goldberg!
Eitan was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in April 2014. "There are many people who are affected by Crohn's, including my father. He was diagnosed when my mother was pregnant with me. Raising money for research and awareness can help people like me, my father and so many others. Maybe a cure is around the corner and Hero kids like me can make the difference for others before Crohn's takes over their lives."

And our 2015 Adult Patient Honored Hero, Victoria Tadross!
Victoria's goal is to help further research on identifying the causes of Crohn's and colitis to more quickly and efficiently treat the diseases. She is proud to be the voice of all current patients and for the patients who have lost their lives to this disease, like her grandmother.
