BENEFITING: GASTRO-INTESTINAL RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC

EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2012

Bess Donoghue

THE STORY:

I am running the Chicago Marathon on behalf of the Gastro-Intestinal Research Foundation (GIRF). GIRF, a non-for profit organization, providing funding for clinical and laboratory research performed by the University of Chicago's Section of Gastroenterology, an international leader in both research and treatments for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. My aunt was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2004 at age 32, but treatments derived from research, supported by GIRF, assist her in maintaining her remission for this incurable disease. GIRF continues to help the 1.4 million Americans who suffer from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis through research, advancing treatments options, and one day discovering a cure. Help me make the impossible possible, for an extremely worthy cause.
