Currently, my husband, Kirk, and I are training for the San Diego TriRock olympic-distance triathlon with Team Challenge Las Vegas. Our fundraising goal for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America is $8,000.
This is Jay. Jay is 10-years-old and our team’s Honored Hero. After years of specialists not knowing how to treat his Crohn’s Disease, Jay is in remission following three surgeries in three months last year. We know of at least two of our team mates that currently have Crohn’s. Hearing their struggles and stories is difficult, and heartbreaking. One a teenage girl, and another a mother of two school age girls. The cause of their pain and suffering remains largely a mystery to researchers and specialists. We joined this effort to help a cause we didn’t know much about. It’s becoming personal as we realize these invisible illnesses are all around us .
Jay joined us for a team pot luck after our training run today, and had thank you notes for everyone. I have thank you notes for everyone too! Please join us and contribute any amount you can HERE to help find a cure for this devastating disease. EVERY DOLLAR helps and it’s all tax deductible! This is the world I want to live in. One where we all help each other however we can.
