BENEFITING: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
ORGANIZER: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
5 Half Marathons and 2 Triathlons later.... I am finally running for Team Challenge on my home turf in the
2014 NYC Marathon!!!
I have traveled to Virginia, Las Vegas, Chicago, Florida and Philadelphia all in the name of raising money and awareness for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation. All the support I have received each season has been overwhelming and so appreciated. This is the first time you can physically cheer me on as I run through the streets of New York City!
Training for races with colitis is an added challenge most of the time, but overcoming hurdles to get to the finish reminds me on how strong and resilient the human mind and body can be. The bar is set high this time: my first full marathon and first time raising 3,500. I'm ready because this is NYC and we got this!!!
After 10 years of living with Colitis, I'm ready to call it quits ;)
As always a donation of any amount goes a long way, a high five on the course will be such a plus! Each year CCFA funds groudbreaking research and I know the finish line for longer race to find a cure is in sight. I'm so proud to say that all of you have been an important role for research through your kind donations, and love for me and my "fancy" disease!
