On Oct. 20, in Coolidge Park, the 2nd annual Take Steps Be Heard for Crohn’s & Colitis walk will be held. The walk raises awareness and money to fund research for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. This money funds patient support programs, enhances professional education efforts and research for a cure for these diseases.
There are over 1.4 million people suffering from either Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis in the United States. Patients struggling with these irritable bowel diseases often feel alone and isolated due to the nature of the disease. The Take Steps walk and events give those with these diseases an opportunity to connect with others who understand the challenges of living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
Join us on Oct. 20 in Coolidge Park at 1 p.m. for music, food, kid’s activities and local entertainment followed by the walk at 2 p.m. To donate or form a walk team, please visit the Chattanooga Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis website at www.cctakesteps.org/chattanooga.
