Corporate Partners Commit to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation Mission to Cure Digestive Diseases
Date:5/24/2010

Centocor Ortho Biotech, Lifeway Kiefr, and Shire Sign On As Take Steps Walk Corporate Supporters

New York, NY (Vocus) May 24, 2010 -- The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation announced today that Centocor Ortho Biotech, Lifeway Kiefr, and Shire will participate as official national sponsors of the Foundation’s Take Steps Walk program in 2010. The corporate sponsors are supporting 100 Take Steps Walks this spring and summer in communities around the country. Walkers will raise much-needed dollars for research into Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, chronic, painful, and often debilitating digestive diseases. Collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn's and colitis afflict over 1.4 million American children and adults.

As acknowledgment of their partnership the logos of these companies will appear on Take Steps signs, printed materials, T-shirts, and web sites.

“The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is so appreciative for the generous support we are receiving from Centocor Ortho Biotech, Lifeway Kiefr, and Shire in 2010,” said Richard J. Geswell, President of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. “Their involvement in Take Steps critically helps support the Walks which are the foundation for research investments to find better therapies and ultimately a cure for these debilitating digestive diseases.”

The number of people with newly diagnosed IBD has significantly increased in recent years and there is no known cure. The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation has defined the field of IBD research for nearly a half-century, enabling the best scientists to discover better therapies and ultimately, a cure. In the past two years alone, over 75,000 Americans participated in Take Steps, raising over $13 million to help the Foundation fund research, education, and support initiatives. Visit
