To cure and prevent Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases through education and support.
T ake 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.
