|I am so glad you made it to my page! You are almost there to help me find a cure for a horrible disease that people don't like to talk about. That being Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.|
To all of my friends and family, and for the new people I have yet to meet:
Some of you may know that I have Ulcerative Colitis(A form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease), and some of you might not. It is one of those diseases that you have and people can not see you are sick by looking at you. And many of us that have it really try to hide it. I have had it for 26 years now. I have tried to explain it some of you, and know there is alot of confusion.
This may sound crazy but I have a personal goal of completing a triathlon. In November, I will be crossing the finish line at the TriRock Clearwater Triathlon with your help.
I joined Team Challenge so that I could not only reach my own goals but also to help those who suffer from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. By joining this team I am hoping to raise awareness and help raise money for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America.
My goal is to raise $2,900 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, to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by inflammatory bowel diseases. 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!
