About Us

Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis is the nation’s largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. Participants raise money for crucial research that wouldn’t even have been possible a few short years ago, bringing us closer to a future free from Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Beyond raising money for research, Take Steps brings together the Crohn’s and colitis community in a fun and energetic atmosphere. Participants are encouraged to make noise and be heard -- raising awareness of these little-known diseases in their community and across the nation.

At latest estimate, approximately 1.4 million Americans have Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. The unpredictable nature of the diseases – never knowing when you might spend two weeks in the hospital, require surgery, or miss an important personal event – creates a significant burden on the community and the economy: more than $1.26 billion in direct and indirect costs annually, according to the American Gastroenterological Association.
