Why I'm Running for Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
My family was impacted by Crohn's Disease when my siblings and I were very young. We were lucky enough to have parents and a team of medical professionals who could support our sibling through this confusing and difficult disease.
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.
I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On October 13, 2019, will run in the Chicago Marathon. This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate me to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure.
Thank you for reading and thank you for your support!
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.
