Does anyone do the Take Steps for Crohn's and Colitis walk in their CCFA chapters?
I am doing it this year for the first time and I am very excited to become active in my CCFA chapter! I am from Michigan so I will be doing the walk on May 17th at Camp Dearborn!!!
I had to take out your link to your fundraising page because it's against the forum rules - sorry!   sad

I never heard about it until reading your post.. I'm registering right now. I'll be at the one in Atlanta. I'm so excited... I feel like I'll be doing something for myself and for fellow crohns and ucers. Plus it'll be fun.

Hey, maybe we can meet there Beth! Me and my family are attending the one in Camp Dearborn too. This is the first time that it has been held there. In the past it was at Mayberry State Park but it has grown so huge so fast that they decided to hold it at Camp Dearborn. Shoegrl too is going I believe. And maybe Laurar, if she's not busy or working. I met both of these ladies (as well as Dakotagirl before she moved out of state) about 2 years ago at the Guts and Glory. So I'm excited to be going this year too!
