October 15 2017 – Every year, TRG participates in the Chron’s and Colitis Foundation (CCF) Take Steps Walk both individually through donations and walking, and as a corporate sponsor. Take Steps is a walk to raise awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis as well as a fundraiser. The event in Reston Town Center has raised $44,777.00 this year that will go towards vital treatment, research, and life-giving patient programs.
Take Steps recognizes those in the community who have been diagnosed with Chron’s and colitis, and they lead the 1 mile walk that both starts and ends in the Reston Town Center. There is music, food, games and face painting, enabling the community to connect and learn more about the diseases. The goal of Take Steps is to empower and inspire each other to fight these diseases and help you connect with the greater IBD community.
