Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis Team Extinguish IBD



Team Extinguish IBD is taking steps to find a cure for Crohn’s and Colitis. All donations go directly to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, which helps 1.6 million Americans battling IBD. I (Sarah) was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2008 and have been struggling quite a bit over the last 7 years. The battle for me has included dozens of hospital stays, several surgeries including a resection, thousands of pills, and lots of specialists. But, I know I’m not alone in this battle. 1 in 200 people have some form of IBD. That means you probably know at least one person suffering, maybe even in silence. I do the Take Steps walk 1) so that we can be one step closer to a cure and 2) because CCFA has so many valuable patient and family programs. This video was played at Extinguish IBD’s trivia night held on March 7, 2015. We raised $1,000 on that night alone! Help me reach my fundraising goal of $2,500 by May 31, 2015.
