1.4 million American adults and children are affected by digestive diseases.  That's roughly one out of every 200 suffer.  Over the past few years, people in the Greater Binghamton area have really come together to show their support for this uncomfortable disease.

Founded in 1967, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America is the leading non-profit, has the mission to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and improve the quality of life for children and adults.  One of the most important fundraisers is the Taking Steps Walk.  I'm happy to say that funding has improved the quality of care for people with these conditions, and brought the light of hope to countless lives.

The Binghamton "Take Steps" Walk is coming up Saturday May 11th at Otsiningo Park's North Field.  The check-in and festival starts at 4pm, with the walk officially underway at 5pm.

You can walk alone, join friends and co-workers or form a team of your own.  The goal is to reach $45,000.00 and according to the web site, they are only at 15% of that goal.
