More than 400 people attended the Mother Road Harley-Davidson customer appreciation day and fundraiser held recently for Abby, a girl who suffers inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
More than 336 hotdogs and 252 burgers were consumed by the visitors and about $500 was donated and, according to Mother Road General Manager Tony Campbell, his niece Abby's team will be participating in the Take Steps for Crohn's and Colitis Walk for the fourth year in a row.
This year, the walk will take place Saturday at Kiwanis Park in Tempe.
Take Steps is CCFA's national evening walk and celebration and is the nation's largest event dedicated to finding cures for digestive diseases. It is a casual two- to three-mile stroll to raise money for crucial research, bringing us closer to a future free from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
More than 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.
