Hi there! Welcome to my personal fundraising page! My name is Alice and I am one of over 3 million Americans living with IBD. I am SO excited to be taking part in the 2021 TakeSteps Walk, an inspirational fundraising event that supports the mission of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
As someone living with ulcerative colitis, I am walking in honor of all those affected by these debilitating digestive diseases; patients and caregivers alike! While many suffer in silence, TakeSteps for Crohn's and Colitis will bring the community together in a fun, energetic and supportive atmosphere - though, as all of my friends and family know, I personally don't need any help being vocal about my intestinal problems! This year our walk will again be virtual, but there will be plenty of opportunities to engage with the IBD community regardless - plus you can expect some fun musical surprises from yours truly along the way!
Your donation will help support local patient programs, as well as important research projects. And it would mean a whole lot to me! This cause is very important and personal to me and I so greatly appreciate you even taking the time to visit this page and read this. If you would like to learn a bit more about my journey with IBD, feel free to find me on Instagram (@alicepingviola) where I frequently share health updates and promote awareness about IBD and the greater autoimmune disease community!
The more money we raise, the closer we will be to making life more manageable for patients who live with these diseases every day. Do you know someone who is affected by Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis? Join my team or share my fundraising page to spread awareness in the community! Any little bit helps, and if financially things are a bit strapped this year, you can also join my team and help me reach my fundraising goal!
