Actor JordanWall is on the South Florida Team Challenge team and currently training for the annualNapa to SonomaWine Country half marathon taking place July15. The team is made up of participants fromPalm Beach and Broward County, who are working to raise $118,000 for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis research.
“We are thrilled to have Jordan on the team this season,” said Manager of South Florida Team Challenge, RachelKramer. “His commitment to the foundation and his motivation to run for the cause means so much. He is helping us get even closer to finding a much needed cure for Crohn’s and colitis.”
Wall is running the race in honor of his friend Randi Morgan who has been living with Crohn’s disease since October of 2009.
“Until Randiwas hospitalized a fewmonths ago, Iwas unaware she suffered fromCrohn’s,” said Wall. “Her consistent enthusiastic attitude andwork ethic belied the daily anguish she consistently endured. Her spirit has not changed, but her condition is day to day. Wewant to raise awareness of this quiet yet painful disease, one that is afflicting nearly1.5 million Americans today, and inch closer to finding the cure.”
The CCFA’s mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases. The foundation consistently meets the standards of organizations that monitor charities, including the Better Business Bureau’sWise Giving Alliance and the American Institute of Philanthropy.
