Date:7/18/2014

NEW YORK, July 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- High-powered research teams supported by the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) are gearing up for an ambitious new goal:  developing individualized treatment approaches for patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (UC), also known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), through their Genetics and Microbiome Research Initiatives.

It's fundraising programs like Take Steps, the Foundation's national walk program dedicated to raising funds for critical research and increasing awareness of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, that are driving forces behind the advancements that have been made in IBD research.  "We anticipate that in the next three to five years, we will identify novel genetic and microbial targets that will form the basis for new therapeutic interventions," said Caren Heller, MD, MBA, Chief Scientific Officer, the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. 

Now in its seventh year, Take Steps is gearing up for its Fall walk season with over 45 walks scheduled across the country.  Take Steps walks are family friendly festivals with activities for everyone including games, music, and great food.  "We're here to provide hope and support for the 1.4 million Americans affected by Crohn's and colitis," said Rick Geswell, President & CEO of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.   "We are grateful for everyone who helps raise awareness and crucial funds through programs like Take Steps and I assure you that all money raised is used wisely, with 82 cents of every dollar spent going toward groundbreaking research, patient and professional education, and patient support programs, " said Geswell.
