Boston, Take Steps to Find a Cure!

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.

And the countdown is on....

A message from your Walk Manager, Stacey Kokoros:



It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016 Take Steps Boston Walk.  My name is Stacey Kokoros and I am the Walk Manager for Boston Take Steps.  I look forward to working with you throughout the campaign to reach your fundraising goals.  While we fundraise for our walk, it is important to remember that you are making a difference in the lives of children and adults living with Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis while we work hard to find a cure for these diseases. 

We are currently seeking volunteers like you to help to make our event even better! If you or someone you know has ideas for engaging the community, enhancing Walk Day, or has a connection for an in-kind donation, please reach out to me at 





Have you collected donations that need to be applied to your fundraising page?
