Many patients feel they are alone in their struggle with IBD, not knowing how to explain their struggle with IBD to others. Take Steps EMPOWERS PATIENTS AND PROVIDES a safe and welcoming environment for patients and their families 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.
