Backpacking from the North Rim to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon was a life-altering experience. Within such stunning scenery and deep history, I was surrounded by people who understood and related to my passion for finding a cure for Crohn's and ulcerative colitis. Hiking in the name of a cure for my daughter in such a breathtaking place is something I will always carry with me in my heart. I left this trip with new found friendships, a very peaceful and content soul, and a sense of pride for what we accomplished. I will always cherish my time inside the Grand Canyon and keep that with me as I move through life.” — Nadine M
