Take Steps is dedicated to finding cures for the millions of Americans living with IBD. It is the largest fundraising walk event for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. In 2019, more than 50,000 people walked for cures with Take Steps, raising nearly $11 million. Due to COVID-19, many of the Foundation’s spring Take Steps walks were postponed or canceled and replaced with TAKE STEPS + VIRTUAL. The funds raised through TAKE STEPS + VIRTUAL will support the Foundation’s mission-critical research, education, support, and advocacy programs.
