The Intense Intestines Foundation holds all kinds of events to raise awareness for Inflammatory Bowel Disease. One of our main goals is to get those with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis to experience exciting experiences and activities that most with these conditions don’t enjoy. With the proper planning those with these disease can still partake in all the activities that a healthy person can do.
Some of the different events that the I.I.F. will hold in addition to normal events will be hiking, climbing, skiing, kayaking, and other outdoor experiences.
1) Intense Intestines Five Boro Bike Tour (May 5th, 2013)
The IIF is going to be riding in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour through New York City this May 5th. The tour goes through all five boroughs, over many NYC bridges, and through Central Park.
We’re excited about raising awareness for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and ostomies during this event. If you would like to make a contribution to our team, please visit the link below.
All proceeds will go to our goals of:
- Raising IBD and Ostomy Awareness
- Helping IBD Patients with various programs
- Help young adults with the Intense Intestines Scholarship
If you would like to join our team and take part in the ride through New York City, please email us at Info@IntenseIntestines.org.
