Hi everyone,

I am not sure if this is inappropriate to post here, and I hope to not offend anyone, but I am truly doing this from a good place. I am trying to raise money XXXXX I decided to commit to run a half marathon in Dec. I have only run 3.5 miles in the past, so this is a bit extreme for me. However, I feel that if people are willing to donate money to help find a cure for the disease, the least I can do is figure out how to run 13.1 miles. If I have to crawl across the finish line for the cause, I will.

I do not have Crohn’s, but there was a huge scare a few years ago- I was misdiagnosed. I was told I had Crohn’s- and for a year, I was on medication I did not need. While I feel blessed to not have it, I did think I had it for a year and therefore still feel a connection to the disease and those who have it. To add to that, a week ago, a co-worker of mine was very upset because a girlfriend of hers just passed away from complications from surgery for her Crohn’s. Although I found out I don’t have the disease, I feel a connection to those who do have it, and would like to help.

{Fundraising for nonprofit organizations is not allowed here at Healing Well. Therefore I edited your post. That said, I think it is wonderful of you to support research looking for a cure for Crohn's, especially since you do not have it yourself. Good luck on your half marathon. -- Ides]
