Tracy Z of Indy vs Chicago Marathon
On October 13, 2019 I will Challenge the Chicago Marathon. Who will come out on top? Mano a Man...err thousands of people... but my battle is special to me! For the first time ever I'll be running FOR something, (other than the banana at the finish line). My fundrasing will go towards Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, because my sister-in-law has it, and it's all her fault I started Marathons in the first place, it's only fair we do this race together (she'll have to listen to me talk for nearly 6 hours!). Full Marathon Training starts 05/26/19, wish me luck. And if you'd like to send me more than good feelings to speed me to that banana, I'd appreciate anything you can donate. I'm on the hook for however much of that $1,750 I can't raise... EEK!
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.
