Crohn's & Colitis Foundation Encourages More Virtual Event Participants: Thousands Already Helped Foundation Raise Funds for Research & Support Legislation
Date:9/21/2009

around the Foundation’s IBD Research and Awareness Act in the House and Senate, which would:
 
  • Encourage Congress to provide funding to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease at NIH for expanded research on IBD.
  • Authorize, for five years, an IBD Epidemiology Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  • Authorize the establishment of a Pediatric IBD Patient Registry at the CDC.
  • Authorize the establishment of an IBD Awareness Program at the CDC.
By writing their local representatives and asking their friends and family to contact their legislators, Crohn’s and colitis advocates are spreading the word about the potential benefits of the IBD Research and Awareness Act.

Shire will donate $1 per footstep to CCFA for research, education and support initiatives for each of the first 30,000 steps taken. The program, which concludes in December, will continue to drive much-needed support to complement its advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill.

About CCFA’s Advocacy Program
Advocacy is a major component of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's mission. CCFA advocates are not only patients, but family members, friends, caregivers, and doctors who want to make their voices heard and see a future free from Crohn's and colitis. Foundation advocates are calling for increased Federal funding for Crohn's and colitis research and awareness programs designed to improve the lives of patients. The Foundation encourages its members, volunteers, and friends to become actively involved in advancing our public policy goals. By sharing personal stories
