A Decade of Difference

For many IBD warriors across the country, supporting the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is something that comes naturally. Since its launch in 2008, Take Steps has been a powerful force in connecting the patient community and accelerating crucial research into the causes of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The dedication and commitment from more than 300,000 Take Steps participants nationally has contributed to more than $85 million raised in the past 10 years to support research efforts.

Join us at Take Steps for our 10th year as we celebrate our “Decade of Difference” and the many research initiatives that the patient community has helped the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation stay at the forefront of as well as what’s to come in the next 10 years.

We are grateful to our Decade of Difference Club Members for donating and/or raising $10,000 or more in 2018 (as of 8/29/18):
