Patty's Footprint is a nonprofit organization founded in memory of Patty Downhour Shoaf. We are dedicated to finding a cure for Crohn's Disease, raising awareness, and improving the lives of those affected by the disease. Patty's Footprint supports Crohn's Disease research, and helping those with Crohn's Disease received the medications needed to improve their quality of life.
How You Can Help
Through your support and participation in our Annual Stepping Up For Crohn's 5K Run/Walk you allow Patty's Footprint to carry out our mission. A very large percentage of all proceeds will go directly to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) http://www.ccfa.org/ to support their research efforts and to the Patient Advocate Foundation http://www.patientadvocate.org/ an organization that helps people with Crohn's Disease obtain the necessary medications thru their co-pay assistance program http://www.copays.org/. With the Patient Advocate Foundation we have set up a Patty Shoaf Memorial Fund for Crohn's Disease. Patty's Footprint is also commited to educating and raising awarness within the community and beyond about Crohn's Disease. It is because of people like you who donate, participate and volunteer that we are able to expand our efforts to beat this disease.
