Take Steps Be Heard

This weekend my family and I participated in the Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis Walk in Milwaukee. We walked loud and proud to raise awareness and funds to support an amazing organization whose mission it is to help find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. I was lucky to intern the whole spring semester of my senior year with this organization, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), and help organize the walk. It was great to finally see everything come together!

I had been fundraising all year to reach my goal of $1,000, so thank you to everyone who supported me and helped me reach my goal!  The walk ended up bringing in a total of $55,000!! And this was just one walk. There are Take Steps walks in every state across the country, so I can only imagine how much was raised through this event nationwide.

Here I am with the team. Team Just Water Please! Lookin’ good people, lookin’ good.

Fueling up before the big event!

Thanks again for joining me. Glad everyone seemed to have a good time!

Enjoy nectarine season!
