Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
I am excited to announce that I will be running in the Chicago Marathon 2019. I have decided to run for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation for a few reasons. The main one being, my aunt has suffered from Crohn’s Disease for 26 years, resulting in 2 life threatening surgeries. She has thankfully made remarkable progress and lives the life she deserves, today. I will be running for my aunt, for the 3 million people that suffer from these diseases each and everyday, and simply for those who cannot. Please consider donating and making a difference- every donation counts!
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.
