We are recognizing special young athletes battling IBD who refuse to let their disease hold them back from their goals both on and off the field. We are thrilled to shout out Julia Smith of Minneapolis who shines as captain of her HS dance team.
Athletes vs. Crohn’s & Colitis was founded in January of 2017 by Larry Nance Jr. and Noah Weber.
Both Larry and Noah were diagnosed with Crohn’s disease during their adolescent years, both were aspiring
athletes and both sought mentors with Crohn’s disease who reached their athletic potential.
Together they hope to connect young people afflicted with Crohn’s and colitis to athletes to inspire and mentor.
