Finishing 50 state half marathons to find cures for my son and many more...
4 years ago my son chose one of the few options remaining to improve his quality of life by having ileostomy surgery to bypass his colon. This allowed the diseased portions of the colon to be treated while he has a temporary ostomy. While this has provided relief and improved his quality of life, he is not cured. He continues receiving monthly 4-5 hour infusions to help him maintain his health & quality of life. I believe the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is on track to find cures. I will run & fundraise until my son and the 1 in 100 in the U.S. with Crohn’s or Colitis are cured.
In 2022 I will complete 19 half marathons (completing a half in all 50 states) and aspire to raise $50,000 for Crohn’s and Colitis research, treatment and cures. Please help make a difference for my son and many others with Crohn’s or Colitis by making a donation today. Come join me for a short ~2 ½ hour half marathon jog too. Thanks for your consideration.
