She’s Running So Your Intestines Don’t

Posted by Eric on December 29, 2008

jpouch.netJanuary 25th is just around the corner and with it comes the Team Challenge half marathon to benefit the CCFA (Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America). Stephanie has already shared her story and asked for your help. Here is another runner, Julie N.:

Why am I running to support the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America? Crohn’s disease and colitis are painful diseases of the digestive tract that affect 1.4 million American adults and 150,000 children. Among that 1.4 million Americans is my husband and members of our family.

Andy likes my idea for a slogan: “I’m running, so his intestine doesn’t.” That seemed a little much for the headline for the webpage though.

If you haven’t already donated to this worthwhile cause, please consider doing so now. If you have, thanks, and here’s a way to get the word out to others.
