Liberty State Park Take Steps

Team Fialkoff

Millions of Americans are living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, and currently there is no cure. Team Fialkoff is walking and raising money to support the crucial work of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. 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.

This year is especially significant, as, in addition to both Cara and Mike Fialkoff continuing to serve on the Liberty State Park Walk Executive Committee, Mike has been named as this year's Honored Hero for the walk. Having been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at age 4, Mike is honored to be in a position to contribute (and spur others to contribute) to the search for a cure and to show other pediatric IBD patients that they are not defined by their illness.

Please help us reach our team goal of $5,000.00 for Take Steps Liberty State Park by donating or registering and fundraising. Your support will help the Foundation invest in cures for the future, while providing support to patients today.

Leaders in Research: The Foundation has invested more than $400 million in research toward cures since its inception. They remain laser-focused on reducing time to disease diagnosis and improving disease management. The Foundation continues to lead the way in critically important areas of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research, and to accelerate novel therapies and innovative products that address unmet patient needs. 

Empowering Patients and Caregivers: The Foundation serves millions of patients annually, and empowers both patients and caregivers through education, support, and advocacy programs. Examples include COVID-19 resources, expanded pediatric support, influencing legislation, and focusing on diversity and inclusion.
