Central Connecticut CCFA Take Steps Walk

On Saturday, May 14 2011, the Yale IBD Program participated in the Central Connecticut CCFA Take Steps Walk. Take Steps for Crohn's and Colitis is CCFA's national evening walk and celebration to raise money CCFA. The Yale IBD Program was a proud sponsor of this year's Take Steps Walk.

“Team Yale” was recognized as this year's Central CT Take Steps Top Fundraiser, contributing nearly $19,000 to the CCFA! We are thrilled to know that all of the money raised will be used to help support local patient programs and research efforts! "Team Yale" was captained by Susanne Johnson, APRN and Pediatric GI fellow Phillip Stein, MD, whose family raised an amazing $17,636! This year's walk was an enormous success, and we hope to continue this success in years to come!
