Take Steps Impact in Austin

Road Rally Recap

It was a perfectly beautiful evening for the first ever Take Steps Road Rally in Austin. About 75 participants gathered at the Ultimate Drive-In to watch The Goonies and a video mission program celebrating our IBD fighters and community. We want to thank everyone who made this hybrid year possible, especially our leadership volunteers!
