1 in 200 Americans live with Crohn’s and colitis, yet there is no cure. That’s why we are participating in the inaugural spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures on December 5th, 2020.
Our team will be participating in a 25 minute indoor cycling relay and fundraiser during Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week. We’re committed to raise $10,000!
Over 1.6 million American adults and children are affected by these digestive diseases. While many suffer in silence, spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures brings the community together in a fun, energetic and supportive atmosphere.
Your donation will help support local patient programs, as well as important research projects. Please join our team or donate to our efforts to support the Foundation.
We spin4 cures!

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 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.
