We are topping off Crohn’s & Colitis Awareness Week in a BIG way — these awesome billboards can be found in Northeast Ohio. We love sharing our story and raising awareness for kids battling IBD!
We hope to see you on Friday, December 7th, for a pregame event at the exclusive Terrace Club at Progressive Field and then to watch AVC co-founder Larry Nance Jr. and the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Sacramento Kings at Quicken Loans Arena.
On October 27th, we kicked off our “Larry’s Leaders” program, in partnership with the Cavs and Cleveland Clinic, in which we host pediatric IBD patients for a night out at The Q! Our first Leader is Michael, a football player from Youngstown battling Crohn’s disease!
Noah took 10 kids with Crohn’s or colitis to attend a Lakers vs Knicks game in New York City. This special night included a suite at Madison Square Garden and a Meet and Greet with Larry Nance, Jr. after the game.
On June 2, 2017 at Purchase College, Athletes vs Crohn’s & Colitis held their first event to raise money for their mission. The 3 on 3 basketball tourney was a sold out event complete with a championship game, awards, Larry Nance, Jr., and Mariano Rivera.
Joe Girardi, former manager of the New York Yankees, tells Noah’s story while wearing an A vs C t-shirt during his pregame press conference to help raise awareness of Athletes vs. Crohn’s and Colitis. Click Joe’s picture to watch the video.
