I'm running my first marathon to raise money for CCFA!
I have decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On October 8, 2017 I will run in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to help raise money and awareness to help find a cure for these diseases.
I am running in honor of the 1.6 million Americans (including myself) who have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
This will be my first marathon. It definitely will be a big undertaking, 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?
Thank you in advance,
