Sacramento, Take Steps to Find a Cure!
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.
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 Sacramento 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!
