Top Fundraising Club

You or someone you love has been living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and you’re ready to make a difference. You registered for the event. You’re ready to start asking your friends and family for support. You’re ready to become an IBD champion!

Our top fundraising club recognizes all the hard work you put into raising money in support of IBD research. We want to celebrate all the incredible milestones you achieve, and the difference you make in the lives of those living with these diseases.

Join the 2018 Top Fundraising Club

The Top Fundraising Club consists of Take Steps’ highest fundraisers -- both individuals and teams. Benefits received in the Top Fundraising Club aim to recognize and thank those who go above and beyond to raise critical funds in support of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s mission.
