1.6 million people in America suffer from some type of inflammatory bowel disease, including those diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and Ulceritive Colitis. 70,000 new cases of IBD are diagnosed each year, with many people suffering in silence.

There's an event being held by the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation to raise money and awareness of these diseases, the West Michigan Take Steps Walk, on Saturday.

Everyone is invited to connect with patients, families, healthcare providers, and organizations while fundraising for cures.
