From (former JLN editor) Nicole Rohr:
Thank you for supporting me in my personal challenge to complete the Rock & Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon, while raising money and awareness for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation (CCFA)! Through Team Challenge, I have committed to raising $3,800 to help the estimated 1.4 million Americans living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. A minimum of 82 cents per dollar raised by CCFA goes directly to research and patient support. Your tax-deductible contribution will go toward curing Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, and improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
My aunts, uncle, and dear friend from graduate school all suffer from these digestive diseases, so I’m running for them! With a minimum donation of $26 ($2 per mile), I can raise funds through this half marathon to further research for those in constant, uncomfortable pain.
Thank you again for your generous support! See you in Vegas!
