Welcome to Rebecca's Personal Page !!!
Hello. I have decided to make a personal difference in the fight against Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Crohn's Disease is REAL for my family...my 12 year old nephew and godson, Jonas, was diagnosed with the Crohn's a few years ago. He spent that first year in and out of doctor's offices and the hospital trying to find a diagnosis for his symptoms. He was a very sick little boy. Today he is currently in remission and leads an active lifestyle. I am proud to say that he recently secured a spot on the International Academy traveling soccer team.
Jonas is such an inspiration to me !!! I have committed to running a Fall Marathon and to raising $5,000. On Sunday October 8, I will run in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. This will be a big undertaking and huge challenge for me. I have unfortunately been sidelined the last 2 years with an injury but still want to run the marathon to raise Crohn's Disease awareness and funds. At the end of the race, 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.
I can’t do this without your support and generosity. Please consider making a donation to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation...No donation is too small and will make a difference in a Crohn's patient’s life.
Will you please help me reach my fundraising goal ?
Thank you from the bottom of my heart !
