Team TrIBD is ready to go!
We have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On July 30, 2018, we will participate in the Santa Rosa Ironman 70.3 race. We're a relay team, with Karyn Collins swimming 1.2 miles, Marie Hughes cycling 56 miles and Lana Foladare in the anchor position, running a half-marathon (13.1 miles). Phyllis Howell is currently sporting an ankle injury and can't race, but as Team Captain, will be at the race to cheer her team to the finish!
This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate us 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
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). IBD affects an estimated 1.6 million Americans. These chronic diseases tend to run in families and they affect males and females equally. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract and may affect any part from the mouth to the anus. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory condition limited to the colon, otherwise known as the large intestine.
The Mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America is: To cure and prevent Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases through education and support.
