Local Heroes

Take Steps Honored Heroes represent the Crohn's disease & ulcerative colitis warriors living in our community. They share their story of life with IBD to raise awareness and inspire others to join the fight against digestive diseases.

This year we have the pleasure of honoring TWO local heroes in the Charlotte Community - Freeman (Free) Watkins and Sophie Marx! Read more about our Honored Heroes below and join us as we celebrate them on Saturday, June 3rd!
