' Our mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
' Caitlin is a patient ambassador for the greater Houston area and raised more than $16,000 in the Take Steps walk last year. The Take Steps Walk celebrates people living with Crohn's or colitis (like Caitlin!) and raises funds toward a cure. Nationwide, Take Steps has raised over $50 million in the last 5 years.
' Take Step this year is at the Houston Zoo. It'll be a mile long, and family-friendly. Attendees are encouraged to fundraise - $25 suggested donation and $250 in funds raised per walker recommended.
' Take Steps held over 140 walks in 41 states, engaging more than 60,000 participants and 220 corporate partners. CCFA South Texas Chapter holds walks in Austin, Corpus Christi, Houston and San Antonio.
