I am back for my fourth and fifth events with Team Challenge. We all come to Team Challenge for many reasons ... believe me, I have lots of reasons.... 1.6 million of them, that is the estimated number of Americans who suffer with IBD, and that is just the reported cases. That doesn't count those that don't get treated or are being treated for something else due to misdiagnosis. I have a more personal connection as well. Crohn's runs in my family, so I run against Crohn's. I have brothers and nephews that all suffer from Crohn's, I have friends near and far that suffer from IBD, random strangers tell me their stories. More and more children are being diagnosed at younger ages. We need a cure, we are getting closer with every dollar raised and every race run. I do this for them, for you, for me. I cannot sit idlely by and do nothing, so I am asking for your help. I will run the miles, if you can donate the dollars. I don't ask this lightly, I know we all have other financial commitments. All donations are tax deductible.
