Run the NYC Half for Team IBDkids

Kids with IBD (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) know about endurance – they’re in it for the long haul. There is no known cure for IBD and it can be tough on kids. You can help them with your commitment, toughness and endurance by joining Team IBDkids. Cedrick in the Marathon
