Welcome to My Personal Page
As an endurance triathlete, aside from appreciating the outdoors, I really enjoy pushing myself mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Each training session has a purpose and each event always presents a new set of challenges to persevere. In 2019, I will be joining Iron Team Challenge for my 8th 140.6 Ironman event, my 6th with Crohn's and Colitis Foundation.
As a Iron Team Challenge Advocate and athlete, I am blessed and grateful to have the opportunity to help change the lives of individuals with Crohns or Ulcerative Colitis. They have no choice but to persevere every day. I chose this particular cause to help bring a voice, visibility and funds to a very private disease. Once we find a cure, they too can live a spontaneous, healthy lifestyle, without limitations - something I strive to do everyday.
The patients I continually meet along my triathlete journey are the real heros and ultimately my motivation. I would sincerely appreciate you joining our cause with a donation, ANY amount you contribute will make a difference! Thanks for your consideration and for being an important part of Team Orange, we are funding key IBD research, education and support.
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.
