2021 Running to cure my son and many more...
In 2018 my son Nick chose one of the few options remaining to improve his quality of life by having ileostomy surgery which bypassed his colon to allow the diseased portions of the colon to be treated while he has a temporary ostomy. The procedure has provided relief and improved his quality of life. However, he is not cured. He continues receiving monthly 4 hour infusions of Remicade to help him maintain his improved quality of life. I believe the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is on the right track to finding cures and I will run & fundraise until Nick and the 1 in 100 in the U.S. with Crohn’s or Colitis are cured.
Until Nick and so many others are cured, I will run; I will advocate; I will fundraise. This year I hope to run in ~5-6 half marathons across the US and fund raise ~$25,000.
I ran in IA in mid April, and hope to run in MI, ND, MD, LA and AZ throughout the remainder of 2021.
Please help make a difference for Nick and many others with Crohn’s by making a donation today. Thanks for your support and consideration.
