So many people with Crohn’s Disease and Colitis suffer silently...I hope FFG’s participation in Take Steps helped someone feel less alone and inspired to keep fighting.
Rochester, New York (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
Foundation Financial Group supported Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America’s Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis fundraising walk. The event benefitted people suffering from Crohn’s Disease and Colitis and was attended by employees from Foundation Financial’s Rochester Regional Sales Center, located at 1 South Washington Street #3.
"The work the Financial Foundation Group volunteers performed at our 2013 Take Steps for Crohn's and Colitis was priceless,” said Stacy Massaro Executive Director Rochester, NY Chapter of CCFA. “With the help of the many volunteers that showed up, we were able to have a very successful walk. Thank you to all on behalf of all those we serve.”
Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis is the nation's largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. At Monroe Community College, Rochester’s CCFA supporters walked two miles together to demonstrate solidarity, raise funds, and spread awareness for people suffering from Crohn’s Disease and Colitis. Take Steps brought the digestive diseases community together to share some exercise and enjoy music, food, kids’ activities, and local entertainment.
“So many people with Crohn’s Disease and Colitis suffer silently,” said Foundation Financial Group Event Coordinator Nicholas Hallas. “I have watched Crohn’s Disease drastically impact a member of my family, so I am familiar with the struggle. I hope FFG’s participation in Take Steps helped someone feel less alone and inspired to keep fighting. I am proud of Foundation Financial’s commitment to helping worthy organizations like the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America continue funding educational efforts and cure research.”
Over 1.4 million American adults and children are affected by Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Crohn's Disease is prevalent among adolescents and young adults, while Ulcerative Colitis is typically diagnosed in patients during their mid-30s. Inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis occur when helpful bacteria is mistaken for harmful bacteria and attacked by the immune system.
Founded in 1967, Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America is a volunteer-driven organization with a mission to cure both diseases and improve the quality of life for children and adults affected by these diseases. Today, the organization has grown to 40 local chapters, with more than $150 million raised and invested in research for a cure. This funding has enabled groundbreaking treatments, improved the quality of care and brought the light of hope to countless people with digestive diseases.
