It's the Big Dam 100 Mile Ride
It's that time of the year again...this year I get to ride the Big Dam Bridge ride in Little Rock, AK on September 28. 100 miles of beautiful country and the longest cycling bridge in the world - Woo Hoo!!!. All this fun is to raise money for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
I'm hoping you will consider supporting my efforts. For those of you who have supporetd me in the past, Thank You! If this will be your first time, Thank You for stepping up!
Every amount helps chip away at my goal. If you can afford $5, great. $25, great. $50 or more, great. Are you seeing a pattern here?
If you can't support me this year, no worries! Send me good thoughts as I continue to train for this amazing ride.
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.
