THE STORY:

 Thank you for visiting my Team IBD kids fundraiser page! As a nurse practitioner at Mount Sinai’s Susan & Leonard Feinstein IBD center, I see first-hand the effects of IBD on children, adolescents and their families.  Research on IBD and improvements in care can help ensure that all kids diagnosed with IBD grow and mature like their friends, stay healthy enough to go to school, participate in extracurricular activities, and stay out of the hospital. 


2017 will be my second time running the NYC Marathon with Team IBD kids, but my first time running as a new mom. I now know and understand the heartache felt when your child is sick. I am so proud to be a part of and support such a wonderful organization.   


Everyone running for Team IBDkids knows that Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, together known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or “IBD”, are tough on kids. The Children’s IBD Program at Mount Sinai works every day to help these kids and their families cope and live normal, productive lives. IBD is a chronic, life-long disease.There is no known cure, its causes are only partially understood, and it can be debilitating. 


You can help. You can make our marathon run count. 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. I want to thank you in advance, for visiting my page, and for supporting my team and me as we run for kids with IBD. You can follow my training progress on Instagram @NikkiTbtw or by checking in on my fundraiser page where I will continue to update my training plan and fundraiser events. Let's go #TeamIBDKids #Runforlife
