National Pharmaceutical Company to Sponsor Popular Indianapolis Walk
Date:6/12/2008

Salix teams up with Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America for this year's

Take Steps event

KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is happy to announce that Salix Pharmaceuticals, a leader in gastroenterology, is a major sponsor of this year's Take Steps event on June 14th at 4 p.m. starting with family festivities in Overland Park, Kansas a suburb of Kansas City. The 5K walk begins after the festivities at 7 PM and takes place at Corporate Woods Office Park and is expected to draw hundreds of participants who will carry noisemakers to break the silence when it comes to Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

While Takes Steps for Crohn's & Colitis events are taking place in dozen of cities around the country this year, Salix has selected Kansas City as one of only four markets in which to be a major sponsor.

"We work closely with the CCFA to support its overall mission nationwide. In addition, CCFA conducts many local, awareness-building events around the country and we have chosen Kansas City as a pilot market for supporting CCFA's local activities," says Mike Freeman, Executive Director, Investor Relations & Corporate Communications. "We want patients in Indianapolis to know that they have a choice in bowel preparations and may not necessarily have to drink large amounts of unpleasant-tasting liquids when they prepare for their colonoscopies."

Approximately 70,000 people in the Kansas City Metro area and nearly 1.5 million Americans have Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. More than 83 cents of every dollar raised from Take Steps directly supports The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's research, education and support initiatives. This event, however, not only raises money for Crohn's disease and colitis research, but it also brings about awareness of these two painful and unpredictable afflictions.
