Seattle, 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.

Take Steps Western Washington will take place at beautiful Magnuson Park in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of Seattle. Magnuson Park, Seattle's 2nd largest park, is located on Lake Washington and stretches down one mile of Lake Washington's shore. This former Navy airfield has many features that make this urban park the perfect place for recreation and leisure, and its miles of groomed trails are ideal for Western Washington's annual Take Steps Walk!
