Thank You to our Top Teams

Our Take Steps teams recruit team members, hold fundraising events, and solicit sponsorship dollars and resources to help advance the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's mission to fund cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. All of our teams have been instrumental in driving national awareness and critical funding needed to advance our research pipeline and provide support resources to patients in the form of support groups, online communities, Camp Oasis, and more.
