“When I was at my sickest with ulcerative colitis, I couldn’t eat, sleep, or work, let alone exercise. Constant pain, fatigue, dehydration, and more prevented me from being able to be active,” said Jordan Wilson, an ulcerative colitis patient and spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures participant. “However, in the years since I had surgery, that has changed drastically. Through spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures, not only am I able to push myself physically and ride with the best of them, but I know my efforts are bringing us closer to finding a cure for IBD.”
Teams of up to four people per bike participate in a two-hour cycling relay choreographed to high energy music. There is also the option for solo riders to take on the entire ride themselves. Each bike has a $1,000 fundraising commitment for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. If you don’t live in a market with an event, there is also an option to Ride Where You Live. This gives supporters the opportunity to create a local event and raise funds to support the Foundation.
Every rider will have access to professional fundraising support and resources as well as detailed information about the programs they are supporting and impact being made on lives of the 1.6 million Americans who live with these debilitating inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
“The excitement and energy our riders bring to these events is an incredible display of support for the IBD community. Many are riding for themselves or someone they love and it’s their passion that continues to inspire, encourage, and motivate us to grow this movement.” said Craig Comins, Vice President of the Foundation’s spin4 crohn’s & colitis cures program.To learn more, visit www.spin4.org.
