Here We Go Again!
Our fundraising efforts and formal races had been put on hold due to Covid, but unfortunately IBD hasn't given it a rest. As you know our famlly has been deeply affected by Ulcerative Colitis. Our daughter Justine, Jill's brother Ron and Jill all suffer from Ulcerative Colitis. Though mostly in remission, it is a part of all of our daily lives. So we're at it again to raise critical funds for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation to continue to fund research and patient support for those living with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. The funds raised over the 10 years since we have been pariticpating in Team Challenge have led to important breakthroughs towards finding a cure. We hope you will contnue to support us as we train for another half marathon this September.
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.
