Omaha Take Steps + Virtual

In light of CDC guidelines, we will not be hosting our walk in person. Instead we’re excited to host a national TAKE STEPS + VIRTUAL walk experience on Saturday, June 20, 2020 to give our whole community a safe way to come together and honor our patients and caregivers while we continue to raise funds for cures. While this is a necessary precaution, the idea of our national Take Steps community coming together during this difficult time is inspirational to us and we hope you agree.

For the most up to date details, please like our Take Steps Facebook page and Iowa/Nebraska Chapter Facebook page. We’ll be sharing information in real time as we announce decisions.

The health and safety of IBD patients and caregivers is our top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Foundation has set up a page for IBD patients to get the best information from credible sources. We invite you to explore this helpful resource and hope everyone is staying well!

We sincerely hope that you will consider maintaining – or even increasing – your commitment to fundraising. IBD doesn’t take a break and unfortunately is often exacerbated for our patients during times of stress. This is why we remain committed to fulfilling our mission in every way possible including finding a cure.

Here’s a reminder of all the tools we offer to support your virtual fundraising:

Facebook Fundraiser: connect your fundraising page directly to Facebook through your Fundraising Center! Money raised through your Facebook Fundraiser will be reflected on your fundraising page. Participants who use Facebook Fundraisers raise, on average, 7 times more than those who don’t. Learn more here.
Email: send solicitation emails to your network sharing why you Take Steps and your donation link. Your Fundraising Center has email templates to help get you started!
App: download the Take Steps App for Apple or Android to send messages, post to your favorite social site, and emailing your friends from your phone’s address book.
Obstacles are nothing for us IBD warriors. We are strong. Thank you for your continued support and remember we have 3.1 million reasons to continue fundraising for cures!
