"RUNNING ON NATURAL GAS"
That's the motto for this half marathon. I am running in honor of many family members that have been diagnosed with various forms of colitis, and am focusing my support here, with the CONNECTICUT CHILDRENS MEDICAL CENTER as they have taken care of my brother John-Paul for 11 years as he was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at 10 years old.
Your support of me will not only continue to help JP, and his team at CT Childrens led by Dr. Hyams, but all patients who walk through the door of this amazing medical center.
CT Children's is celebrating 20 years, this year. I'm hoping to raise $210 dollars, 20, and 1 for good luck :)
I invite you to learn more about this disease and how it directly impacts the body and immune system. http://www.ccfa.org/what-are-crohns-and-colitis/what-is-ulcerative-colitis/?referrer=https://www.google.com/
