Thank you for supporting Take Steps!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2022 Take Steps Walk. Our walk has passed but donations will continue to be accepted through the end of the year. Your dedication helps us continue supporting ground-breaking inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research and patient programs.

Whether you donated, volunteered, fundraised, or all of the above, we truly appreciate your support!

Have questions or interested in getting started for next year? Reach out to Sarah Arminiak at 646-306-1970 or

I haven't hit my fundraising goal. Can I still attend? You bet! Whether you were recently diagnosed or have been living with IBD for decades; whether you are a caregiver or a friend; whether this is your first year walking or year 13, YOU are a member of the Take Steps family. We welcome you to the event! 

Can I bring money to turn in for my team? Before you head out count all of your donations. Once you arrive at the Check-In tent we will ask you to fill out a donation envelope to show which team/participant is recording the donations. If you have matching gift forms from your employer, please turn those in along with your donations. Please make checks payable to "Crohn's & Colitis Foundation."

 In the meantime, below are some tips to help jump start your fundraising!

1. Log into ‘My Fundraising Center’ located in the top right-hand corner of this website. You’ll need to login first and the Fundraising Center will be under the section that says “Hi, NAME”. You can also log in and gain access to fundraising tools by downloading our app in the App Store or Google Play store.

2. Personalize your Take Steps fundraising page in ‘My Fundraising Center’. Upload photos, and share why you walk.

3. Start a Facebook Fundraiser in ‘My Fundraising Center’ or from the app. Donations collected through your Facebook Fundraiser will automatically be reflected on your Take Steps fundraising page.

4. Ask your network of friends and family to support you by matching your donation or joining your team and fundraising alongside you. Email templates can be found in ‘My Fundraising Center.’

We’re so excited to be able to come back together in person this year, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you! Thank you for deciding to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. As a Take Steps supporter, you recognize that no one should have to deal with the fear, uncertainty, and pain of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We believe that when we band together in the fight against IBD, we can have a lasting effect on the lives of every person diagnosed today and in the future.
