BENEFITING: Connecting To Cure Crohn's And Colitis
EVENT: Team CtoC LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2018
Hi Friends... Chronic illness is painful. Chronic illness is stressful. Chronic illness is full of unknowns. In short, chronic illness stinks. But over the past several years, I have learned from friends who are suffering from the chronic illnesses called Crohn's and Colitis, and their caretakers, that while they live with the pain and the stress and the uncertainty, they all have one other thing in common: they do not give up. I am inspired by these friends, and I look for any opportunity to do what I can to find treatments and perhaps, one day, cures for these diseases. So, here is the latest...I am training with an amazing team to run the Charity Half Marathon at the LA Marathon in March, 2018 for an organization called Connecting to Cure Crohns and Colitis. This is just another endeavor to which I have committed myself since it was mentioned as an "oh, by the way, guess what we are doing next year" by my dear friend and co-founder of the organization. She and the others who have dedicated their efforts to addressing these chronic illnesses, are really hard to deny. They fight the pain, the stress, and the uncertainty every day; the least I can do is train like crazy to take one Sunday in the Spring to run for two and a half hours... That is where you come in. Nope, not asking you to run with me. But there is an ask here: Please support my effort. No donation is too small, and I will be even more motivated to run when I can see all the good we can accomplish together. Simply click donate! It's as easy as that. I thank you in advance for your support.
