Crohn's & Colitis Foundation Evening of Hope


November 7, 2013

An Evening of Hope

CRSAL was proud to be a sponsor of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Evening of Hope fundraising event on November 2, 2013 to further awareness of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

The Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America’s (CCFA) mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.

About Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis:  Commonly referred to as inflammatory bowel disease or IBD, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are painful, medically incurable illnesses that attack the digestive system.  Crohn’s disease may attack anywhere from the mouth to the anus, while ulcerative colitis inflames only the large intestine (colon).  Some 1.5 million American adults and children suffer from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, with as may as 150,000 under the age of 18.  Most people develop the disease between the ages of 15 and 35.

The event’s goal was to raise funds that will benefit the Minnesota-Dakotas Chapter patient support and research programs.
