Team Challenge: It’s More Than a Race


We challenge you to achieve more than you ever thought possible. Team Challenge combines fitness and fundraising, empowering you to help find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis while also being part of a supportive community. Whether you train & travel to a destination event with our teams, or choose/create your own own event, there are plenty of ways to get active and raise funds!

No matter how you decide to move with us, Team Challenge is so much more than a race or activity! We are a community, a family bonded together for a purpose much larger than ourselves  — to help find cures for millions of Americans living with IBD.

Whether you're a beginner or elite athlete, you can do this! When you join, you will get access to personalized benefits including:

  • A supportive online community of other Team Challenge participants from across the country. We utilize private Facebook groups to connect our participants. Most participants have a connection to IBD, so you'll be able to connect about training AND the shared goal of finding cures.

  • Fundraising support and resources. Your team's manager will coordinate opportunities for the team to connect, will guide you through fundraising, and be your personal cheerleader.

  • The opportunity to earn team gear so you can show off your pride!
