Crohns & Colitis Foundation

Outside of the NW Forums, you may not know who i am. But my girlfriend Aara & I have registered to participate in our first ever Triathlon which will be held in San Diego, CA, sponsored by Land Rover, on September 9, 2012.

We have a very hefty goal of over $8,800 to reach by this time. Neither my girlfriend nor I live with Crohnís or Colitis disease, but this shouldnít be a reason for us not to give back to those who live with this un-curable auto-immune disease. My girlfriend was recently diagnosed with an auto immune disease known as Alopecia.

I pray that our future children do not have to live a life with a life altering disease; but if such an event happens, I hope that those who reach out and see the importance of giving back arenít only those who become directly affected. Any support or donations are deeply appreciated. It's time for us to give back to those in need.

Anything will help!!

anything would help guys. so far there's been 59 views. if we could each donate even $1, we'd be $59 closer. please please help the foundation.

my gf and i plan to get married next year. every dollar that we are short of 8800, will come directly out of our wedding funds, but its a risk we are willing to take to help others. i'm not going to lie, i've always felt like i've lived a pretty selfish life, and i'm money hungry. its my turn to do something worth working towards, i hope someone can donate anything at all. thanks again.

Just a little background about an auto immune disease that affected my girlfriends life recently and why I'm taking part to help raise money for another auto immune disease.

Aara, my gf, best friend, and triathlon teammate was diagnosed w alopecia areota which creates patches of balding to total balding of the entire body, eyebrows, eyelashes. theres no cure and no explanation or pattern as to why it happens. this happens to relatively very healthy people. my gf is a choreographer, dance and acting teacher, 24 yrs old, and very active in the gym and daily life.

because this happens to healthy people, the medical board doesn't see it as a disease that needs much focus. the result of that is very little support, or money towards any clinical research. a lot of doctors actually know little to nothing about what it is or how to treat it.

a friend of ours went to medical school and told us their text book literally had no more than 2 sentences going over alopecia. thankfully, my gf doesn't have any life threatening disease, but its definitely life altering. for a beautiful woman like herself who lives on stage and lives to perform and teach others, yet to deal with balding and possibly wearing wigs for the rest of her life and tattooing her eyebrows. its heart wrenching for me to see her like that.

i plan to propose to her next month. since she's been diagnosed, she keeps wondering if i still want to be with her. without a doubt in my mind, her engagement ring is almost done mounting as we speak

heres a picture of us . sorry, that explanation turned into a long winded read.

You realize he said "every point i beat you by i donate a dollar" right? So you would get more benefit if YOU played with your feet.
