Take Steps for Crohn's and Colitis Evening Walk
May 9, 2009
Take Steps is a local and national evening walk dedicated to raising awareness and crucial funds to find a cure for digestive diseases. One in every 200 people suffer daily with digestive diseases. Throughout the year, Take Steps enables patient families to join together with their local community to build visibility and awareness about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis while raising critical funds.
Participants will enjoy a casual 2-3 mile stroll, live music, a wide variety of food, special entertainment, prizes and giveaways, raffles, and kids attractions. Enjoy these festivities all while raising money for crucial research that wouldn’t even have been possible a few short years ago, bringing us closer to a future free from Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
Many of the 1.4 million Americans with these diseases suffer in silence. Take Steps brings together this community in a fun and energetic atmosphere, encouraging them to make noise and be heard.
