BENEFITING: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
ORGANIZER: Crohns Colitis
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Crohn's and colitis permanently change the lives of those affected by these diseases. If you're on this page, you likely know me very well and know that my family has been facing Crohn's disease for over a decade now. So I don't need to tell you the toll this disease can take, you've seen at least part of it you've ever spent time with us. It's exhausting and CCFA provides invaluable support for patients and caregivers who desperately need it. CCFA also funds research to cure these diseases so that no one will suffer from them in the future. If you can donate any amount, small or large, it truly helps the Crohn's and colitis community. Thank you!
