Taking Steps Against Crohn's Disease with Peter

June 08, 2010

This summer, I'll be walking in the Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis Walk in Houston, Texas. Take Steps is CCFA's national evening walk and the nation's largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. It is a casual 2-3 mile stroll to raise money for crucial research, bringing us closer to a future free from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Over 1.4 million American adults and children are affected by these digestive diseases, and many suffer in silence. Take Steps brings together this community in a fun and energetic atmosphere, encouraging them to make noise and be heard. Your donation will help support local patient programs, as well as important research projects. This cause is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight for a cure! In addition to donating, you can join me at the event. There will be food, music and activities for the kids. The more money we raise, the closer we will be to making life more manageable for patients who live with these diseases every day. Please join me or donate to my efforts on the CCFA website, with your help we'll be successful in finding a cure! For more information on the take steps walk, visit the Crohn's and Colitis website at http://online.ccfa.org.
