Sailing for IBD Research

Posted by Megan on June 20, 2008

We received this email, and we would like ask you to take a few minutes and vist this site, seems like they are really trying to raise awareness for RESEARCH for IBD with CCFA.  They have a grant deal pending that if they raise 10,000 of their own before they sail around the world, they will get another $10k donated, so $20,000 for IBD Research at CCFA.  This is legit and done by friends and families of people devasted by IBD: https://www.thepoint.com/campaigns/sussman-at-sea

Hi Mark and Megan,

Three years ago a good friend died from post-op complications after his colostomy.  He was 26 [26 yrs old]at the time, and as you can imagine it was a huge tragedy all of us in his life.  Another friend is now sailing across the Atlantic, and using the opportunity to raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis research (he has secured a $10,000 matching grant).  While the story is a sad one, I hope your community can find inspiration in Ari’s efforts to celebrate the life of Yossi and keep him present in our lives.  The campaign can be found here: https://www.thepoint.com/campaigns/sussman-at-sea.
Thank you, Joe H.
