As some of you know, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in August 2019. These past few years have been an adjustment, but I am lucky to have a great support system. For the first time, I will be participating in a fundraising event to help raise money for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. Alyson and I have created a team (Strollin’ For The Colon) and will be walking in the Take Steps event at Liberty State Park on June 12th Anyone is welcome to join us or if you can’t make it, we’d appreciate any and all donations. Thanks in advance for your support!
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect more individuals than you may think – millions of Americans suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Take Steps is the Crohn’s & Colitis 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 so patients know they are not alone.
Please help me reach my personal goal of $800 for Take Steps so that together we can support the crucial work of the Foundation. Your donation to my fundraising efforts will help the Foundation invest in cures for the future, while providing support to patients today.
Leaders in Research: The Foundation has been a leader in IBD research since their founding more than 50 years ago. They are accelerating the pace of research by breaking down traditional barriers to patients, data, funding, and collaborations, as well as catalyzing critical cutting-edge research studies and clinical trials at major medical institutions, and financing underdeveloped areas of research.
Empowering Patients and Caregivers: The Foundation serves millions of patients annually, and empowers both patients and caregivers through education, support, and advocacy programs.
