Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis

Millions of Americans suffer from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) – many of them right here in Michigan.  IBD includes Crohn’s disease and a related disease, ulcerative colitis.

Participants in the 2010 Take Steps Walk for Crohn’s & Colitis are walking together on the Detroit River Walk to build awareness – with the hope to one day find a cure for these painful and unpredictable digestive diseases.

All Blues employees, family and friends are invited to participate in the second annual UAW-BCBSM/BCN Joint Programs Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis Walk to benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. The event will be held Saturday, June 26, beginning at 5 p.m. Registration is open now and through the day of the event.

Put your walking shoes on and join the fight against Crohn’s and colitis. Walkers will enjoy the beautiful Detroit RiverFront, while they work to build a healthier community.
