Chris P's 2016 FIGHT for CURES

Support Me

IN 2016, I WANT TO PUSH MYSELF TO DO SOME THINGS THAT I HAVEN'T DONE BEFORE, SYMBOLIC OF THE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL BATTLES THAT TOO MANY OF MY FRIENDS HAVE HAD TO ENDURE.

Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis have nearly killed some close friends. Other friends have actually lost loved ones.

These diseases have brought so much pain and suffering to so many friends that I have vowed to fight as hard as I can to find new treatments and cures, as quickly as possible.

And while my fundraising in the past has seen about 20% of those funds getting into the hands of researchers, CURE for IBD will allocate 100% OF DONATIONS DIRECTLY TO RESEARCH! 

Throughout the year, I will be raising awareness and funds through a variety of events, and I appreciate any support you can give.  The purpose of participating in these events is not to draw attention to myself, but rather to draw much needed attention to these insidious diseases, for the kids and adults that so desperately need cures.

GOOD NEWS:  NONE of your donation will go to pay any of my event expenses or any other expenses... CURE for IBD will allocate 100% of your donation to Inflammatory Bowel Disease research so that cures can be found sooner.

I won't ever stop fighting for my family and friends.  That's a promise that I intend to keep.  Thank you for any support you can provide.

Regards,
Chris

PS - I would also like to invite you (or anyone else you know) to set up your own CURE for IBD fundraising page.  It's free, and there are no age limits or fundraising minimums, so even kids can get involved in supporting this charitable cause.  There is strength in numbers, and together we can find a cure even faster!

 

The mission of CURE for IBD is to fund research towards new therapies and cures for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. CURE for IBD was founded by parents who have dedicated themselves to finding a cure for their children and everyone else living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. CURE for IBD does not pay any participant event or travel expenses, and only funds research with the goal of finding cures sooner.
Over 1.6 million Americans (1 in 200) are affected by Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which includes Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, insidious and debilitating diseases in which the immune system attacks the digestive system. These are life-long chronic conditions that often result in extended hospital stays and the need for multiple surgeries over a person's lifetime. Crohn's and ulcerative colitis, along with many of the medications used to manage IBD, lead to an increased risk of cancer and other conditions. Complications can be life-threatening or fatal.
Children are the fastest-growing population being diagnosed, sometimes before the age of 1, and their symptoms are often more severe.
