I am back!!
After Denver 2020 & New Orleans 2021 season's being cancelled due to COVID, I will be participating in my 10th season with Team Challenge running the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon on Sunday, September 4th 2022.
I am so excited to be amongst teammates from around the country, united in our commitment for the cause.
Brendan is doing well with his infusions (still every 8 weeks), with some minor obstacles with insurance as he turned 26. I am very proud of him for being a strong advocate for himself as he lives with Crohn's Disease.
Thankfully, I continue to feel well; my Ulcerative Colitis is under control with only a few flares these past couple of years.
Running for Team Challenge & raising funds for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation is important to me as it helps to fuel research & awareness for a disease that is not always talked about. I am still very hopeful for a cure one day soon.
Every little bit helps, please consider donating to my cause.
With gratitude & appreciation of your support,

About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Known collectively as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect millions of Americans. 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.
