Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization dedicated to finding cures for Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. It was founded in 1967 by Irwin M. and Susanne Rosenthal, William D. and Shelby Modell, and Henry D. Janowitz, M.D.
Since our founding over four decades ago, CCFA has remained at the forefront of research in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Today, we fund cutting-edge studies at major medical institutions, nurture investigators at the early stages of their careers, and finance underdeveloped areas of research. In addition, our educational workshops and programs, along with our scientific journal, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, enable medical professionals to keep pace with this rapidly growing field. We are very proud that the National Institutes of Health has commended us for "uniting the research community and strengthening IBD research."
Team Challenge is an endurance training and fundraising program unlike any other. It's a unique opportunity to change your life and the lives of others. After our customized training program, you will be forged new friendships and accomplish things you never thought possible. No matter what your fitness level, we will train for a rewarding and exciting endurance event at one of our great destination races while raising vital funds to help find cures for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
