Join Channel 9 Meteorologist Keith Monday as he hosts the 2018 Charlotte Take Steps Walk.
The Take Steps Walk, benefiting the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, is the nation’s largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. Many patients have only ever met a handful of other patients suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, IBD – this is a unique opportunity to meet hundreds of IBD patients, families, and supporters from your own backyard.
Charlotte Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis is an incredible experience for all to celebrate the efforts that have been put forth in raising funds toward our mission. It is a day filled with live music, food, kids’ activities, educational materials and of course wonderful exposure for our corporate partners.
Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018 Time: 9:00 AM Check-in and Festival Start | 10:00 AM Walk Start
Location: Symphony Park — 4400 Sharon Rd, Charlotte, NC 28211
About Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. Since our founding over four decades ago, CCFA has remained at the forefront of research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Today, we fund cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finance underdeveloped areas of research. In addition, our educational workshops and programs, along with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field. We are very proud that the National Institutes of Health has commended us for "uniting the research community and strengthening IBD research.
