Crossing the Finish Line to find a Cure!
To my friends and family:

This year I have decided to take on a huge challenge for a wonderful and very personal cause and I need your help! In December, I will be crossing the finish line at the 'Rock 'n Roll' Las Vegas Half Marathon for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's Team Challenge.

This was a difficult decision, but I decided to make the commitment after living with Crohn's Disease for more than 8 years. I was diagnosed with the digestive disorder at age 15 and I have dealt with various complications from the illness ever since.

The last few years in college and in the working world have been especially difficult, but the challenges I have faced over the years have given me the motivation to seize the day and become part of something bigger than myself. I am doing this not only to accomplish a personal goal, but also to help others dealing with this chronic disease.

I want to run in las Vegas to be part of a group that aims to prove that this disease can not stop you from achieving your goals and setting new ones.

The mission of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America is to help find a cure for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, and to improve the quality of life for the millions of people now affected by the diseases.

My goal is to raise $3,600 for Team Challenge and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, as well as to finish the race. Over 80% of every dollar I raise will directly fund the mission of CCFA. CCFA is not a government-supported agency and relies solely on the support of members and donors, like you, to continue their work.

Please help me reach my goal by donating today! Thank you for your kindness and support1
