Hi friends and family! I'm so excited that Take Steps Fort Lauderdale is April 23rd! Thisyear we will return to our traditional walk format for the first time since 2019.
As most of you know I work for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation Southern Florida Chapter where I oversee these remarkable events in three South Florida markets. I cannot tell you how much these diseases impact those I work with every day. Every few weeks another patient I work with is back in the hospital, entirely separated from family- sometimes for weeks at a time. Additionally, Covid has hit our foundation financially, which can impact our ability to provide much needed services to these patients. This is why I choose to raise funds on a personal level in addition to my day to day responsibilities. Please help me reach my personal fundraising goal of $1,000. Every dollar counts.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect more individuals than you may think – over 3 million Americans suffer from these autoimmune diseases which we collectively refer to as Irritable Bowl Diseases (IBD). Take Steps brings the community together in a fun, family-friendly and supportive atmosphere so patients know they are not alone.
Thank you all so much!
