Team Kate is raising awareness and funds for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) to help fund research to find a cure.
In 2014, a few months after Hal Bone’s daughter, Kate, was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, we created Team Kate to participate in the CCFA’s fundraiser Take Steps. The money we raise is spent on four key areas — research, patient services, advocacy, and professional education. The CCFA cannot fund the mission without the generous support of donors as they do not receive any government funding. We truly appreciate your support.
A Special Note From Kate:
“Have you heard of Crohn’s? If you have, what do you think people know about it? It’s a disease that is in your intestines. My name is Kate Bone, and I have Crohn’s. I was in kindergarten when I was diagnosed with it. Even though it can be tough, I’ve learned a lot from my dad who also has Crohn’s. He taught me to not let Crohn’s stop me from doing the things I love. I especially don’t let it stop me from playing basketball!”
How can you help? You can join Team Kate to support research to find a cure for Crohn’s disease.
“Be strong, and let your heart take courage.” — Psalms 27:14
I envision a day when no one endures these devastating conditions. Together, we will make this happen.
