BENEFITING: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
ORGANIZER: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Family and Friends,
I will be training to run the New York City Marathon on November 6th, 2016 as a part of Team Challenge and the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. This will be my first marathon in 9 years, and I'm thrilled to be doing it in my favorite city in the world.
Our son Nick was recently diagnosed with ulcerative pancolitis. This is a chronic disease with no current medical cure. I will be running in Nick's honor, and have set a goal to raise $5,500. Every dollar I raise will go to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, which funds research, education and support services.
I am excited for the dual challenge of training for a marathon and raising money for a cause that is very personal for me and my family.
Thanks for your donation!
