Thank you everyone for visiting my fundraising page. I'm raising money for the second year in a row for Team IBD Kids because I want to keep supporting the important work they are doing for children with IBD. As someone personally affected by IBD, I appreciate the education and support The Children's IBD Center at Mount Sinai provides to children and their families, and the groundbreaking research they conduct. Please consider a donation of any size to this important cause. It will totally make my day!
With sincere gratitude,

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, together known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or “IBD”, are tough on kids and The Children’s IBD Center at Mount Sinai works every day to help these kids cope and live normal, productive lives. IBD is a chronic, life-long disease that causes inflammation, swelling and pain in the digestive tract and in children it can impair growth and development.
There is no known cure for the disease, its causes are only partially understood and it can be debilitating. But you can help. Your donation to Team IBDkids will be used to fund research into the cause and treatments of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and for support and education programs serving children with IBD and their families.
