In 2017, we hosted our first ever Bottoms Up 5K at Fountainebleau State Park and had over 40 registrants and 35 race completers and our hope is to grow to an ever larger event this year!
This event was dreamed up by a few dedicated volunteers as an alternative to our more family-focused events, such as Take Steps. The idea is to reach out to a new demographic of runners, young professionals, and outdoor enthusiasts who we may not currently be engaging with. As we grow our chapter, we ultimately want to offer year-round touch points for the IBD community to engage with the mission of the Foundation to find cures!
Proceeds from the Bottoms Up 5K benefit the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation are non-refundable, but are transferable. Amounts received are deemed unconditional contributions at the time of commitment.
