Do you or someone you know suffer from an Irritable Bowel Disease like Crohn’s or Colitis? If so, this is just the episode for you! Cody Geddes and Jackie Miller joined us from the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America’s Team Challenge. Team Challenge is composed of a group of people who get together, get in shape, get motivated, and go run a half marathon to raise funds for research projects. You don’t have to have an IBD to participate either; you just need that desire to walk the talk!

 

CCFA offers a wonderful community to those suffering from an IBD. CCFA provides information and education sessions and puts on Camp Oasis for children with an IBD. In addition to Team Challenge, you can participate in the annual Take Steps, Be Heard fundraising walk. For more information about these events, log on to www.ccfa.org.
