Raise $100+ and Become a Pacesetter!

Pacesetters fund cures – period! In 2020, 2,838 Pacesetters raised a collective $2.6 million to support the life-saving work of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. That’s an average of $916 each! If every registrant had committed to raising at least $100, we would have raised an additional $515,400 nationally in 2020 in support of the millions of Americans living with IBD.

While advances in technology are bringing us closer than ever to cures, unfortunately they do not come cheap. Every dollar you raise brings us one step closer to a world without Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Pacesetters are individual fundraisers who raise at least $100 for Take Steps. As a special thank you for fundraising, each Pacesetter receives a Take Steps walk t-shirt:

  • Follow steps to “Raise more money with Facebook” or click here for instructions
  • Using the email templates in the Fundraising Center to send donation ask to friends and family
