Kyle is A Marathon Man
Hello Family & Friends!
I am excited to be joining Team Challenge for the 40th Bank of America Chicago Marathon! It has been a lifelong dream to run the Chicago Marathon. It feels extra special fulfilling this dream while running in benefit of The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation.
Throughout my time working at the foundation I have seen the impact we can create for the 1.6 million Americans currently living with IBD.
I am grateful for my health and I am frequently reminded of how fortunate I am to have it. I'm committing to this challenge to support those I have met who suffer from these debilitating diseases.
I run for the mother who was called crazy and thrown out of doctor's offices when she persisted that something wasn't right with her son, only to have him later diagnosed with IBD.
I run for the co-workers who have become friends, whose dedication and strength amaze me on both professional and personal levels.
I run for continued hope.
It is no longer a matter if, but when we find a cure. I hope that you'll join me in supporting IBD patients and their families. Every dollar brings us that much closer to a cure for Crohn's disease & ulcerative colitis. Thank you!!
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 1.6 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 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.
