Zoey Haynes is 9 years old and she will be entering the 4th grade at Gasport Elementary this year. She was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in February.

She and her family have learned of many people right here in Gasport that have this disease (or Colitis) and would like them to be aware of a walk happening in Lockport. There has never been a walk for the Niagara County Region so hopefully it can bring people together that suffer from Crohn's & Colitis.

The walk -- Take Steps for Crohn's & Colitis -- will take place in Lockport at Wide Waters Marina on October 29. Registration will be at 9:00 A.M. Walk starts at 10:00 A.M.

Check out the event online:

Zoey has been chosen to be the local Honored Hero. See her story here:
