Take Steps Walk, Denver - 2013
Many patients feel that they are alone in their struggle with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases -- Crohn's and ulcerative colitis -- not knowing how to explain to others what they go through. Take Steps provides the perfect environment for patients and their families to come together and know they are not alone in this fight. The night is filled with music, food, kids activities, local entertainment and most importantly the company of hundreds of people who truly understand the impacts of IBD.

The Local Honored Hero for the 2013 Denver Take Steps Walk is Ashley Raykovitz.
"My name is Ashley, I am 18 years old, and I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease in September 2009. Since my diagnosis, I have spent a lot of time at The Childrens Hospital in Aurora, Colorado. I have endured countless procedures and many surgeries, and I can tell you firsthand that living with this disease sucks. Throughout my journey with Ulcerative Colitis, I have had some really bad days. However, I have tried to keep a positive attitude, and I am so happy to say that, thanks to my wonderful doctors and surgeons, my disease is under control and I feel great!"
