Welcome to My Personal Page
For 2019, I have decided to continue to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Clad in Team Challenge orange, I will race in the half-distance Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico on Sunday, March 17, 2019; the full-distance Hudson Valley Triathlon on Saturday, July 13, 2019; and the Olympic-distance New York City Triathlon on Sunday, July 21, 2019. These races will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will motivate me to the finish and will bring us get closer to a cure. Please donate 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.
