Welcome to My Personal Page
On October 13, 2019 I will be participating in the Chicago Marathon. I'm excited to run in such an iconic race and as part of that I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis by running as a member of Team Challenge for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. With multiple close friends who live with this disease, I knew I wanted to help out when the opportunity came up. I hope you'll consider supporting this foundation through a donation as I work toward this goal in October!
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.
