IRONMAN Chattanooga

Blogging this for a friend.

With the loss of our IBD warriors in a larger number and closer succession, the money raised by Sarah could be the money that finds the cure! For 1 out of 200 of us, we pray or whatever it is we do, for a cure daily.

I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.  On May 17, 2015 I will race in IRONMAN Chattanooga.  This race consists of a 1.25 mile swim, 56 miles on the bike, and a half marathon of 13.1 miles. A total of 70.3 miles, but it will all be worth it because your donations will not only motivate me to the finish, but they will help us get closer to the cure.  Won’t you please consider a donation today?

About Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both major categories of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). IBD affects an estimated 1.4 million Americans. These chronic diseases tend to run in families and they affect males and females equally. Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract and may affect any part from the mouth to the anus. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic inflammatory condition limited to the colon, otherwise known as the large intestine.

The Mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America is: To cure and prevent Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases through education and support.
