This year I am participating in spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures, an exciting and inspirational fundraising event! This event supports the mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, which is to cure Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. To learn more about our local spin4 crCI will participate in honor of the millions of Americans affected by these debilitating digestive diseases. While many suffer in silence, spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures will bring the community together in a fun, inspiring way.
Over the last 18 years I have suffered in silence with bouts of colitis that would come and go. But it wasn't until 2016 after being admitted into the hospital through the ER that I was told that I have a severe case of Crohns disease. Knowing that I would have to be on an immune suppressent medication was very difficult for me hear because I have always been someone who is conscientous about what I put in my body. I have tried to go off medication in hopes that I could manage it though diet but it always comes back. It has taken me 6 years to come to terms that I have to live with crohns disease for the rest of my life and now I want to ride for a cure.
Your donation will help support local patient programs, as well as important research projects. This cause is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight for cures!
The more money we raise, the closer we will be to making life more manageable for patients who live with these diseases every day.

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.
