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.

Team Captains- we've got a great new incentive this year! 

Our goal this year is to have 100% participation from all of our walk participants.
You can help us achieve this goal by encouraging your teammates to donate $25
and then ask all their friends and family to match their $25 donation.

Just for being a team captain and an excellent leader on your team,
we're going to give you this fun sticky cell phone wallet. 

When your walk team has raised its first $250,
you will receive ten additional cell phone card holders to distribute to
your teammates or donors! Our way of saying THANK YOU for everything you do.
