BENEFITING: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation

EVENT: 2010 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010

THE STORY:

I am so excited! I was lucky enough to get into the NYC marathon on November 7th on my first attempt at the lottery. To make my run more meaningful, I'm using it as an opportunity to raise money for The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.

As you might remember, my sister Emily was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when she was only 16 years-old. She endured hospitalizations and various treatments. In 2003, she had surgery to remove the most inflamed part of her intestines. She continued to take a ton of medications daily & treatment through IV infusion every six weeks. Despite this, she continued to face daily challenges and this past February had to have emergency life-changing surgery.

I am so happy to say she just had a party to celebrate 6 months of being healthy! I pray that she will continue to be healthy, that new medications will be created, and one day a cure will be found. By helping CCFA raise money for research, the prognosis for crohn's & colitis can be turned around in the near future.

Together, we can make a difference!
