Each year, we honor patients and advocates at our Take Steps events nationwide. These local heroes are central to the mission of the Foundation and their stories shed light on the difficult journey of IBD patients across the country experience Each honored hero works with their local chapter to spread awareness in the community through their fundraising efforts and by fearlessly sharing their story.
These are just a few of the amazing stories behind some of the 2022 Honored Heroes across the country. We will continue to feature new honorees throughout the year, so be on the lookout for your community leader!
