Huge thanks to Chet Layman who did a fantastic job MC'ing and calling the games!

All proceeds support the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) and the Southwest Montana Crohn's and Colitis Community. These inflammatory bowel diseases affect 1 in 200 people: that's as many as 500 of our neighbors in Gallatin county and most certainly someone you know and love somewhere. The CCFA provides resources and support for families dealing with these diseases, funds cutting edge research that is making great strides toward better treatments and a cure, and offers great opportunities including an amazing summer camp for kids with IBD and one on one mentoring. When we meet our fundraising goal, we will each run a half marathon to honor and celebrate those with IBD and our Team Challenge efforts.

THANK YOU for your support! Jodie DeLay and Melissa Reily

About Team Challenge
Team Challenge is the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s endurance training and fundraising program. With Team Challenge, you’ll find new strength inside yourself, and help find cures for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, two painful, seldom-discussed and debilitating digestive diseases. With our Half Marathon and Triathlon Training Programs, you'll train for a rewarding and exciting endurance event at one of our great destination races while raising vital funds for research into these diseases. 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.
