Team IBD Kids 2017
April 04, 2017

THE STORY:

It takes a team – be it ballplayers, runners or medical professionals.   Team IBDkids has been running the NYC  Marathon for 12 years  and supporting the research and projects  of  The Susan and Leonard Feinstein Inflammatory Bowel Disease Clinical Center at Mount Sinai, probably the only combined pediatric-adult IBD Center in the country.  We have our team of researchers, nutritionists, social workers, advanced care nurses, and psychologists working alongside gastroenterologists and surgeons all working to provide  state-of-the-art medical treatment and innovative research.  

Projects have included: 

• Genetic mechanisms among families at risk for IBD 

• The role of bacteria in IBD • Dietary therapy in IBD 

• Outcomes of therapy in a large registry 

• The role of anxiety in IBD and transition of care 

• The use of Chinese herbs to block inflammation.  

FAMILY STUFF 

The marathon has been a very personal thing for me.  Starting in his freshman year of  high school in 2000, my son Jordan would jump in with me at 96th and First and would run the last 8 miles.  Once he was  in his 20s, he started, doing the whole distance but not regularly.   My two favorite marathon memories involve Jordan, the first was when he went off to college and unbeknownst to me, my wife arranged for him to come down and surprise me at 96th and First  to again run the last eight miles.    My other favorite memory was crossing the finish line with him in 2010.  My wife, Judy has her own streak going as well  as she has been out there watching every single NYC marathon that I have run.  When Jordan was not able to join me,  my daughter Carly would take his place.   I’ve added some of those pictures as well.   In 2009, the year my father died, I ran it in his memory with his name Murray on my shirt.  To say that I am going to miss running the marathon is a slight understatement but what  a run it's been.
