Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis 2009

Take Steps 2009As advertised on the San Francisco BART system over the past few weeks, the Take Steps for Crohn’s and Colitis walk was this past weekend.  For the 3rd year in a row, I donated my photography services to the cause and as usual had a great time doing it.  For the second year, the event was held at Justin Herman Plaza and the walk took place along the Embaracero.

As described on the official website, “Take Steps for Crohn’s & Colitis is CCFA’s national evening walk and celebration of the nation’s largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. Participants will enjoy a casual 2-3 mile stroll and raise money for crucial research that wouldn’t even have been possible a few short years ago, bringing us closer to a future free from Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Throughout the year, Take Steps enables patient families to join together with their local community to build visibility and awareness about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis while raising critical funds for research.  Over 1.4 million American adults and children are affected by these digestive diseases.  While many suffer in silence, Take Steps brings together this community in a fun and energetic atmosphere, encouraging them to make noise and be heard.”

For more information about the Take Steps fund raiser or about CCFA, please visit the CCFA website.

All of the photos I took during this event can be viewed on Flickr, or my new storefront.  10% of all proceed made from image sales from this event will be donated right back to CCFA.  And, as a bonus, 10% of proceeds from photographic services referred by CCFA will also be donated.  Just mention that you were referred to me by CCFA.

Till next time…
