Thank you so much to everyone that came out for the "Drink to end Digestive Diseases" event on October 3rd! It was a wonderful evening! We collected close to $1000 in donations!
Thank you for supporting me in my personal challenge to complete the Rock-N-Roll 1/2 Marathon in VEGAS on December 2nd. This is my second time running Vegas at night. Check out this video for some highlights from Team Challenge last year!
Through Team Challenge, I have committed to raising $2,600 to help the estimated 1.4 million Americans living with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. A minimum of 82 cents per dollar raised by CCFA goes directly to research and patient support. Basically your donations go where they are supposed to go!
I got involved with Team Challenge in March of 2011 because a very good friend sent me a link to the web page with the caption, "YOU HAVE TO DO THIS!" She was right! So far through fundraising and my own personal contributions over $15,000 has been donated to the CCFA. I can't even believe it!
I was diagnosed with UC in 2001 at the age of 25, I was so sick that I spent 21 days in the hospital and left with no colon to speak of (not that people generally talk about their colons). I was very fortunate because I did not suffer with flare-ups for years, I got sick, almost died and had my colon removed. Bing, Bang, Boom! Finding a cure may help you or a loved one. It may save your mom's life or your child's life. It may save my daughters' lives. Be as generous as you can, every cent is tax deductable. If you want more information or need help, check out the CCFA's web site @ www.ccfa.org.
Thank you again for your generous support!
Total Donations Collected:$1,283.00
