Boys Town Pediatric Gastroenterology Takes Steps for an IBD Cure

Take Steps toward IBD Cure

On June 23, more than 90 Boys Town Pediatric Gastroenterology staff, patients and families participated in the Take Steps Omaha Walk with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation at Werner Park. Boys Town Pediatrics participating team raised over $2,300 toward finding a cure for inflammatory bowel disease.

During the event, Dr. Anna Trauernicht, gastroenterologist, and nurse Angie Schaecher participated in the "Pie-A-GI" activity. Participants paid $5 to throw a pie or $10 to walk right up and pie them in the face! Dr. Laurel Prestridge, gastroenterologist, earned a free pie to use thanks to her money-raising efforts.
