Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis – June 11, 2016


Please join the MedStar Georgetown IBD Team to help make a difference in the lives of people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease!

Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis” is the Crohns & Colitis Foundation of America’s largest fundraising event dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the 1.6 million American adults and children affected by Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis—that’s one out of every 200 people!

The funds raised through “Take Steps” will help support patient programs, enhance professional education efforts, and propel critical research for cures.

In 2016 the CCFA will walk in more than 120 local communities across the country and work to raise more than $11 million to continue critical work. Walk as an individual or gather your friends, family, and co-workers to join our team.
