Over 400 walkers turned out today  to help in the fight against Crohn’s Disease and Colitis.  The walk was held late this afternoon at Otsiningo Park in Binghamton.

Walkers of all ages took part in the fund-raising event with pledges and contributions going to help in the fight against digestive diseases Crohn’s and colitis.

The Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis Walk is the CCFA’s largest fundraising event and is held nationwide.  It is the country’s only walk dedicated to finding a cure for digestive diseases.  These diseases affect over 1.4 million American adults.

Money raised from the walk helps support patient programs, enhances educational efforts and supports research looking for a cure.  Founded in 1967 the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America is the leading non-profit, volunteer-driven organization geared to finding a cure for Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis.

According to the CCFA over $150 million has been raised from walks like these around the country.  The organization has grown to over 40 local chapters throughout the United States.
