Join Downstate at the Crohn’s & Colitis 2016 Walk, Brooklyn

Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis 2016 Walk, October 9


Join SUNY Downstate’s GI Division team, and to raise money for crucial, cutting-edge research, and to support the local patients and families in our area. Help us reach our team fundraising goal of $5,000!

On Sunday, Oct. 9, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) hosts a morning of music, food, kids’ activities, patient resources, and a celebratory 2-3 mile walk around Prospect Park. It’s a great way for local patients and their families to feel that they are not alone in their IBD struggle, and to feel the community support.

The mission of the non-profit CCFA is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by the diseases. Take Steps is the nation’s largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases.
