Boo YAA...Welcome to Shavon Collins Fundraising page. Bring it Santa Cruz 70.3!
I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This will be my 11th year particapting with Team Challenge and my sixth year on the Team Challenge Iron Team. This is a deeply personal cause since I've been living with ulcerative colitis for most of my life, offiically diagnosed in 2010 and recently diagnosed with Crohn's. On September 12, 2021 I will proudly toe that starting line with my #TCFamily and particapate in the Santa Cruz 70.3 Ironman event. This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate me to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure. Won’t you please consider a donation today?
About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affects almost 1 in 100 people. They are painful, medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. Crohn's disease may attack anywhere along the digestive tract, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon). Symptoms may include abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, fever, and weight loss. Many patients require numerous hospitalizations and surgery. Most people develop the diseases between the ages of 15 and 35; however the incidence is increasing in children.
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is the largest non-profit, voluntary, health organization dedicated to finding cures for inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The Foundation’s mission is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults who are affected by these diseases. The Foundation works to fulfill its mission by funding research; providing educational resources for patients and their families, medical professionals, and the public; and furnishing supportive services for those afflicted with IBD.
