This chapter serves all of Georgia, and assists with the Alabama, Tennessee and Carolinas chapters.


We will #walkforcures this year to EMPOWER and INSPIRE patients and their families to live their fullest lives, and continue our fight for cures. By joining the Take Steps community, you will fundraise to support mission-critical research and patient support programs for the 1.6 million Americans living with IBD. Walk as an individual or gather your friends, family, and co-workers to form a team.
