Take Steps to fight Crohn's & Colitis

Did you know there was a central Ohio Crohn's & Colitis Foundation? We did not, but now we do and our services have been sought out to help raise awareness of this disease. More that 1.4 million Americans suffer from Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and other digestive diseases, affecting one in 200 Americans. This painful, unpredictable disease can affect anyone at any time and might require those affected to spend weeks in the hospital, have surgery or may even be fatal.

A cure is needed and the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is actively searching for that cure. They need your help and central Ohio residents can lace up their shoes, have some fun and make some noise. Take Steps and support the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation here in your own community.

Take Steps Walk is Saturday, June 14 2008 downtown in Bicentennial Park. The walk starts at 7:00 p.m. rain or shine.

You can register on-line at http://www.cctakesteps.org/ and enter your zip code to find the central Ohio chapter.
