THE STORY:

Thanks for visiting! Now that you're here, how about making a contribution to support a great cause!  


This November I mark twenty years living with Crohn’s Disease. In honor of this milestone, I am running the NYC Marathon to raise money for The Children’s IBD Program at Mount Sinai.


Like many of the fantastic people I have met in this unique (albeit unfortunate) community, I consider myself a survivor. Running the NYC Marathon and living an intentional active life is a small way to inspire and provide hope to the thousands of children living with Crohn’s and Colitis.


Crohn's Disease has no known cure. Research is the only way to find one! Every dollar raised and invested brings us closer to finding a cure. Donations to  #teamibdkids.  will fund cutting edge research to achieve breakthroughs in improving the quality of life for children who must live with Crohn’s and Colitis.


This cause is extremely personal to me. I am going to push forward and raise funds from my generous friends, colleagues and family (yes, that's you!). Join me in representing this relentless community. I will run 26.2 miles this year in the New York City Marathon on November 5th, 2017 –stronger, wiser, and fueled by your support!

Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai wrote -

Everyone running for Team IBDkids knows that Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, together known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or “IBD”, are tough on kids. The Children’s IBD Program at Mount Sinai works every day to help these kids and their families cope and live normal, productive lives. IBD is a chronic, life-long disease.There is no known cure, its causes are only partially understood, and it can be debilitating.

But you can help. You can make our marathon run count. Your donation to Team IBDkids will be used to fund research into the cause and treatments of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and for support and education programs serving children with IBD and their families.
