The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization whose mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Today, the organization has grown to more than 40 local chapters, with more than $250 million raised and invested in research for cures. This funding has enabled many groundbreaking treatments, improved the quality of care for individuals with these conditions, and brought hope to countless lives.

Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis is a family friendly community walk dedicated to raising awareness and mission-critical funds for cures for digestive diseases. Since the launch of this program, we have succeeded in bringing together more than 250,000 people and raised more than $75 million to help further CCFA’s mission. We guarantee that at least 80 cents of every dollar raised goes towards breakthrough research, public and professional education, and patient support services in communities across the nation.
