The Crohnâ€™s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) invites the South Florida public to walk for a cure at the nationâ€™s largest event dedicated to finding a cure for Crohnâ€™s disease and ulcerative colitis, two debilitating digestive diseases: Take Steps Fort Lauderdale and Take Steps Miami. #TakeSteps @CCFA
The South Florida Take Steps events are part of more than 100 Take Steps walks that take place across the country to support the more than 1.6 million Americans (approximately 94,000 in Florida) that are affected by digestive diseases. Supporters are encouraged to create a team and help change the lives of the thousands of people affected locally. In addition to the Walk festivities, there will be a kidsâ€™ zone as well as free food, drinks, musical entertainment and bounce house fun for the entire family.
There is no registration fee to participate, but walkers are encouraged to make a donation to receive an event wristband entitling them to food and beverages. Raise $100 and participants will receive a Take Steps T-shirt. Every individual who raises $1,000 or team that raises $5,000 for the Take Steps Walk will join the MVP program and receive special perks, such as an exclusive Take Steps bag and access to the MVP tents on Walk day.
