Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, which affects an estimated 1.6 million Americans. Eighty-two cents of every dollar raised at the event goes toward breakthrough research, public and professional education and patient-support services in communities across the nation.

In 2014, more than 70,000 people joined in walks nationwide to raise $11 million. Walk events include live music, food, kids’ entertainment and educational materials.
