More than 230 people will walk for cures in the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Northwest Arkansas Take Steps Walk on June 2 at 9:00 am at Village on the Creeks in Rogers. ‘Take Steps’ is a family-friendly community celebration dedicated to raising mission critical funds and awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two painful, debilitating digestive diseases that affect 1 in 200 Americans, including 80,000 children nationwide.
2018 marks a special “decade of difference” for ‘Take Steps’. Since its inception ten years ago, Take Steps has brought together more than 300,000 people and raised over $85 million to help further the Foundation’s mission.
The event will also salute a ‘Local Honored Hero’ with 15-year-old Patrick Morrison. The sophomore at Bentonville West High School was recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis.
Funds raised through Take Steps will directly impact vital treatment, research, and life-giving patient programs for 1.6 million Americans who live with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Our walks are family-friendly festivals dedicated to our patients and their families and serves as a celebration for all the hard work and dedication of our community.
