more walk details
Many patients feel they are alone in their struggle with IBD, not knowing how to explain IBD to others. Take Steps EMPOWERS patients and families while offering a safe and welcoming environment to CONNECT and INSPIRE one another. Walk day is filled with music, food, kid’s activities, local entertainment and most importantly, the company of hundreds of people who truly understand the impact of IBD.
Local sponsorship opportunities enable companies to gain exposure throughout the community while supporting this important cause. Providing a cash or in-kind donation helps keep event costs down and results in more funds directed to research, patient education and services. There are several ways your company can support Take Steps.
local hero: Liv Burkhardt
Hi! My name is Liv Burkhardt and I am the 2017 Pediatric Honored Hero for Take Steps New Orleans! I was diagnosed in 2014 when I was 10 years old and participated in my first Take Steps walk in 2015. Even though I had to take a break I had a blast and have kept it up ever since.
Thousands of volunteers have helped the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) work toward our mission to find cures for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. Without our volunteers, we would not be able to provide a high level of support, education, research, and resources to our IBD community.
