THE STORY:

I am very excited to be training to run the NYC Marathon on 11/6/2016.  Not only has this been a bucket list goal of mine,  I will also have the opporutnity to run on the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America team.   While I don't personally suffer from these diseases, many of you know the impact Crohn's had on my life through my father's lifelong battle with the illness.  In addition,  my father-in-law and cousin have been battling ulcerative colitis for many years, successfully in part due to the advances in treatment and medicine options. 

Life has a strange way of coming full circle, so I am here to challenge myself for my family and my Dad! 

I would be grateful for your support in the form of well wishes or a donation so I can reach my goals.  This will be a big undertaking, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate me to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure.  
 

Thanks, Pete

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 of America 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.

Team Challenge is a fundraising program unlike any other. It’s a unique opportunity to change your life and the lives of others. You will forge new friendships and accomplish things you never thought possible all while, helping find cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

CCFA sponsors basic and clinical research of the highest quality. We also offer a wide range of educational programs for patients and health care professionals, while providing support services to help people cope with these chronic intestinal diseases. CCFA has received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for three consecutive years and also has the highest rating from the Better Business Bureau.
