Did you know that over 80% of all money raised by the CCFA goes directly to research and treatment options to hopefully find a cure one day for Crohn’s and Colitis? Take Steps is the largest fundraiser for the CCFA and it was great to see employees participating with family, friends and patients at our walks this summer. Both Take Steps Grand Rapids and Take Steps Royal Oak were held on beautiful days and we had a strong presence at both events. It was a wonderful morning to get some exercise, bond with your fellow MWLC family and raise funds and awareness for this very important cause. Due to our efforts as the highest fundraising team raising over $10,000 this year, Medical Weight Loss Clinic was awarded the Golden Colon Award for 2016!
We walk because over 1.4 million American adults and children are affected by digestive diseases (1 out of every 200). While many suffer in silence, Take Steps is changing that by bringing this community together publicly and encouraging them to make noise and be heard! We couldn't have done this without you and appreciate your support!
