When I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at 18, I never could have imagined how much this disease would change my life! I am one of millions of Americans are living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, and currently there is no cure. Our team is walking and raising money to support the crucial work of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, which has provided me with so much personal support through my UC journey. Take Steps is the Foundation’s largest nationwide fundraising campaign, helping to accelerate the progress of breakthrough research and to support critical patient programs. Take Steps also brings the community together in a fun, family-friendly, and supportive atmosphere and lets patients know they have a community who supports them.
Please help us reach our team goal of $3,000.00 for Take Steps St. Louis by donating or registering and fundraising. Your support will help the Foundation invest in cures for the future, while providing support to patients today.
