BENEFITING: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
ORGANIZER: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
Thanks for stopping by my fundraising site. Your support for me and the CCFA is extremely appreciated. I am very excited and thrilled to have the 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to run in the NYC Marathon, and to do so for a very special cause. Crohn’s disease currently affects as many as 700,000 Americans. Unfortunately, there is no known pharmaceutical or surgical cure for Crohn's disease and treatment options are restricted to controlling symptoms, maintaining remission, and preventing relapse. Your donation will directly support the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) which is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding the cures for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. I think it's important to explain that since CCFA is not a government-supported agency, they rely on the support of donations and people like you to help them continue their mission.
Please support me and this wonderful organization.
