Did you know that 84% of donors say they are more likely to give if a match is offered?

We are so excited that we have a generous donor who is matching all donations for Take Steps up to $100,000!

So what exactly does this mean for your team? The funds you are raising now through March 18th will be matched but this will not reflect in your team fundraising total. It is a great incentive for donors to give now. You can use language like “Right now your donation will have double the impact for IBD cures” as you are reaching out for donations. And if you have not made a personal donation, now is the time.

With nearly 55,000 restrooms across the United States added to the app and over 31,000 downloads, we couldn't be prouder of our app making it easier for anyone who needs a restroom to quickly locate one near them.

"Best app I’ve seen for finding restrooms! I love that I can easily add restrooms or provide feedback on the ones I’ve visited,” says an app user with ulcerative colitis.

For over 20 years, Camp Oasis has provided both a fun environment and a strong sense of community for children living with IBD and our adult volunteers. A newly published eight-year study proves the significant and lasting impact of the program on pediatric IBD patients’ self-confidence, social connections, independence, and ability to understand their medication and talk to their doctors about their disease.

Shout out to Blake's Bowel Brigade who is joining us for the first time!

Seemingly, Blake was a very healthy guy, without any notable gastrointestinal issues, until he was in his early 20s and away at college. In what felt like overnight, he became extremely ill. He was hospitalized with severe gastro symptoms and wasn't discharged until six weeks later, over 30 pounds lighter and with an ostomy bag in place of his large intestine (which had been surgically removed). Fortunately, he later was able to have a series of surgeries to create a "J-Pouch" out of his small intestine and remove the ostomy bag. His original diagnosis was Colitis, but he has since been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. There have been numerous complications and surgeries over the subsequent years, but his symptoms are largely managed by a biologic and he forges through life with a positive attitude and pep in his step. Blake is happily married with two sons, 9 and 12, and a continued exuberance for life.

We are pleased to introduce you to Kevin Weik, 2024 Fort Worth Take Steps Adult Honored Hero!

Kevin was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in early 2017. He began steroid treatment along with another medication that worked for a few months. In May 2017, he had another flare and that August he had blood clots in his leg that led to a double pulmonary embolism. Kevin began to search for new solutions and treatments for his health. He has found that an adjustment in diet, chiropractic care and a biologic infusion is working towards his goal of optimal gut health. From Kevin's journey he shares, "There are potential solutions out there and your body wants to be a part of healing itself, so I encourage everyone to take a multi-prong approach of helping their body and listening to the experts."

Funds raised through Take Steps are fueling research projects that are advancing treatment options. Join Kevin and Jack on May 18th at The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth and register today at https://takesteps.crohnscolitisfoundation.org/!
