    Thousands of volunteers have helped the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) work toward our mission to find cures for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.

  • 10th Anniversary
  • A Decade of Difference

    Even before launching in 2008, patients and families from across the country have been walking to support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Since its launch in 2008, Take Steps has been a powerful force in connecting the patient community and accelerating crucial research into the causes of IBD. Because of the dedication and commitment from more than 300,000 walkers, Take Steps has raised more than $85 million for research efforts.
