Erica's Fundraising Page for CCFA: Chicago Marathon 2019
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are known together as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are painful, medically incurable illnesses that attack the digestive system. It is estimated that over 1.6 million Americans have IBD, however many more suffer in silence.
Since its inception, CCFA has become the largest organization dedicated to curing IBD and has funded more than 1,100 grants for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis research. The Foundation invests dollars wisely, funding the highest-quality IBD research anywhere in the world. The funds raised through Team Challenge directly benefit the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America to support its mission to find a cure and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. More than 80 cents of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes to mission-critical programs!
