BENEFITING: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
ORGANIZER: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
My name is Julie Diktas. Although I am not particpating in the race itself by running, I would like to fundraise for the research to find the cause and better treatments of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, also known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease is tough on kids. IBD is a chronic, life-long disease and there is no known cure. At Mount Sinai The Children's IBD Program helps these kids and their families to maintain a normal life.
I have been battling Chron's disease since the age of 9 and I'm currently 13. Although managing this disease was tough at times it's very important to know that you can help. Your donaion to Team IBD Kids can make a difference.
