This year we want to show appreciation to those participants who take an important first step in raising mission critical funds for patient support, improved treatments & cures…a self-donation!

Not only is a self-donation a great way to jump start your fundraising, it also shows your team and fellow fundraisers your commitment to ensuring a future free of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis! AND when you receive your Decal Don, you can show the world your commitment by displaying your decal in a public place, snapping a photo, and sharing the picture on social media using #DecalDon. Too many patients suffer in silence…WE can be their voice!
