This short video from Kens 5 Creative Services has been made for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and highlights how many people in the U.S. are suffering from debilitating inflammatory bowel diseases.
Currently, one in 200 Americans (including more than 80,000 children) have either Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. The CCFA is trying to raise awareness and funds for the diseases by organizing walks all over the country with their “Take Steps” initiative. Find out if there’s a “Take Steps” walk happening near you.
