Welcome to Mike H's Fundraising page
On July 27th 2019 I will participate in the Santa Rosa 70.3 Half Ironman (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike & 13.1 mile run) to support the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The athletic challenge itself is a huge undertaking and not something I am taking lightly. With every donation and every story i read about these diseases it motivates me to complete this race and something I will take with me on the course to remember when the day gets tough. Please take time to donate as little or as much as possible to hit my target of $3,000.00 and beyond.
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.
