Suzanne Nelson's M.D., M.P.H. Fundraising Page
Running for answers. Running for better treatments. Running for a cure
Dear Friends and Family,

I'm training to complete a half-marathon while raising funds for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic, debilitating, and medically incurable diseases that attack the digestive system. There is no cure for the 1.4 million Americans currently living with these diseases. In October, I will participate in the Lisbon Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon. Help me reach my goal and support research and patient services! Funds I raise will go toward the mission of CCFA, to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by inflammatory bowel diseases. Thank you for your generosity and support!

Total Donations Collected:$5,463.00
Goal: $4,200

These dollars will help make new treatments possible and fuel the search for cures.

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.

About CCFA
Since our founding over four decades ago, CCFA has remained at the forefront of research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Today, we fund cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finance underdeveloped areas of research. In addition, our educational workshops and programs, along with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field.
