Millions of Americans live with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), yet there is no cure. I am one of those people and was diagosed when I was a senior in high school. Throughout my life I've had many flare-ups -- some that were mild and others that were completely debilitating. Without the support of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, my treatment options would be extremely limited. I am able to live an amazing quality of life with Crohn's because of the research and support I receive from the Foundation.
That’s why we are participating in spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures!
Our team will participate in this exciting and inspirational event and raise funds to support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation.

About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) and affect millions of Americans. 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. There are no cures for these often painful and debilitating diseases.
The Mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
