Welcome to Shaun Collins Half Ironman Page
As many of your know, my sister Shavon, has been struggling with Colitis for many years. It's a painful and debilitating condition that needs a cure today. That is why I'm helping by fundraising - for the many sufferers of Crohn's and Colitis.
What this means for me, is a big undertaking in terms of the triathlons I have been performing in order to raise funds. It has been an amazing adventure to work with such talented, warm and dedicated people - Team Challenge - as we all work together for the cure.
This year, the Collins family has planned a number of triathlons culminating in the Half-Ironman event in Santa Rosa this year.
Please give as you are able. Thanks.
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.
