Gastroenterology Health Partners’ first Louisville “Crohn’s and Colitis Take Steps” walk on Saturday, June 1st, 2019 was a great success and a lot of fun, as well!
Gastroenterology Health Partners sponsored the walk, alongside Takeda and University of Kentucky Healthcare. GHP also participated as a team under the name “Strollin’ for the Colon.” As a team, Gastroenterology Health Partners raised $693.00 for Crohn’s Disease and Colitis.
The walk team, “Strollin’ for the Colon”, included employees from Gastroenterology Health Partners:
- Susan Becht
- Kayla Kilburn
- Shetwana Martin
- Melissa Rainer
- Deb Walker
- Laura Yates
- Rhonda Dase
- Suzanne Mauck
- Laura Sprinkle
The last three Gastroenterology Health Partners’ employees each raised over $100.00 for the cause.
The “Crohn’s and Colitis Take Steps Walk” is a nation-wide walking event that is put on by the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation to give support and offer resources to those suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
The $693.00 raised by Gastroenterology Health Partners, plus additional funds raised by other participating teams, will go to helping fund patient services, education, advocacy, and research to improve the quality of life for those with IBD.
