Lori Klein's Fundraising Page - Half Ironman to benefit Crohn's and Colitis Foundation
I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On June 9, I will participate in the Eagleman 70.3 Triathlon - with a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and then ... a half marathon (13.1 miles) run. 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. Won’t you please consider a donation today?
I know several athletes who have Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis who have been huge inspirations to me, and want to raise some money for this great cause in their honor. PLUS- 2 kids with these conditions will be supported to attend Camp Oasis and receive support with their dsease while having a blast!
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.
