Birmingham Take StepsConnect with patients, families, healthcare providers, and organizations while fundraising for cures.
Join The Community
By joining Take Steps, you will become part of the IBD community, who not only provide support to each other, but who, together, are actively raising money to support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation fund research into better treatments and ultimately cures for IBD. Join the Take Steps movement to raise funds for IBD and we can celebrate together at your local Take Steps event.
Our community partners have committed their time and money to support our mission to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. We want to extend a special thank you to those businesses and organizations who sponsor our event through monetary and in-kind donations, who provide volunteer support before, during, and after the event, and who offer matching campaigns to double or even triple the impact.
Our local honored heroes understands first-hand how difficult these diseases can be. They want to support patients like themselves because no one should face the challenges and uncertainty of IBD alone. Honored heroes use their story to raise awareness of these diseases, raise funds in support of the Foundation’s mission, and inspire hope to those living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
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. Without our volunteers, we would not be able to provide a high level of support, education, research, and resources to our IBD community.
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.
