Local fundraisers

When someone does something locally no matter how big or small,

it helps support the mission of Athletes vs Crohn’s & Colitis.

We are proud to recognize some amazing crohnies that have hosted their own fundraisers
to help other athletes battling IBD – every penny counts in the battle against Crohn’s!

Here are some special people making a difference:

We are always so touched and thankful when our supporters host independent fundraisers for AVC. Special thanks to Ruby for including us as the non-profit beneficiary for her mitzvah project! With the generous support of friends and loved ones, Ruby and her family raised over $6,000 for young athletes battling IBD by hosting a fun event at a trampoline park! Thanks so much to Ruby and the Shultz family for their continued support
One of our favorite Crohnies Edward and his family hosted an amazing day in partnership with Orangetheory, @williamsburg.otf! Guests worked up a sweat for a great cause, participated in an awesome raffle, and ended the day with a delicious lunch at @moessouthwestgrill, where a portion of all proceeds benefit AVC! Special thanks to Edward and his family for being such wonderful ambassadors for our organization and raising over $7,000 for young athletes battling IBD!
Our Chicago buddy Evan and his friends hosted a lemonade stand and were able to raise over $50 for AVC, as well as quench the thirst in their neighborhood ?❤️
Ohio gymnast Samara hosted a “Coins for Crohn’s” event at her gym, where she shared her experience with IBD and asked her teammates to wear purple in support. Together, they were able to raise $350 as well as awareness for chronic illness!
The @metrohawksbball club hosted a ? clinic on behalf of AVC. Their generous players and coaches were able to raise over $1,000!
Randolph High School’s softball team lead by Emily C (an athlete with Crohn’s), has adopted Athletes vs Crohn’s and Colitis as their team charity for the 2018 season. Their fundraising efforts were kicked off on April 14 at their annual softball tournament. The team showed their support by wearing purple (color of Crohn’s) and collecting donations throughout the day.  Click here to see Emily speak about Athletes vs Crohn’s & Colitis.
