ON February 26, 2017, I will be participating in the Screenland 5K in Culver City. The race is part of the Centennial Celebration of Culver City and the run course takes you through 2 legendary movie studios. Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis has a team at the race and I am raising money to support their mission which is to unite the IBD community to promote public awareness and to fund research to find new treatments and a cure for Crohn's and Colitis. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are lifelong, chronic autoimmune diseases. They affect over 1.6 million Americans and are often debilitating diseases that can greatly affect one's quality of life. Known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) they are often misunderstood. C to C seeks to raise awareness about what it is really like to have IBD and this race will provide us with another platform to do so. Wont you please support my efforts? I am 16 and have been living with Crohn's since I was 2 years old.
