Our fundraising will make a difference in the fight against Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, diseases that impact many in our communities and families.
100% of all donations will be allocated directly to IBD research; our goal is 100 participants donating $25 to participate.
About this Charity
CURE for IBD was founded on the belief that if more funds are allocated to research, new treatments and cures will be found sooner for our children and loved ones.
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 cures 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.
According to CDC.gov, over 3 million US Adults over 18 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. In addition, children under 18 represent a fast-growing population being diagnosed with IBD. 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, Covid-19, and other conditions. Complications can be life-threatening or fatal.
