A Vegas 1/2 Marathon?????

The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America is starting a new 1/2 marathon program in KC and they chose the Rock-n-Roll Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon as their team event. The event takes place on 12/6 and training starts on 8/29. You can contact me or Rhonda Sciarra (her contact info is below) with any questions. Here is the release from the CCFA Mid-America office...

Go the distance to fight digestive disorders

Spend a winter weekend and complete a half marathon in the glitzy and ritzy Las Vegas, and help find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Join the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation’s Team Challenge teams for winter 2009.

You fundraise to find a cure for these devastating digestive disorders that affect more than 1.5 million people. Team Challenge trains you over four to five months to complete a half marathon, pays for your airfare and hotel to these great destinations, and throws two fabulous parties for you. Consider yourself a couch potato? No problem either; most Team Challenge participants have never completed an event like this before.

Challenge yourself to change your live and the lives of others! Learn more at an upcoming information meeting:
