Team Challenge: How Far Will You Go For IBD Cures?


Team Challenge is the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s endurance program, created to raise funds to accelerate cures for IBD and support critical patient programs. With exclusive entries to premier races around the world like the TCS NYC Marathon and the prestigious BMW Berlin Marathon, anyone can participate in Team Challenge.


You can walk, run, swim, cycle or move any way you’d like in support of the IBD community, while raising critical funds!

Team Challenge is a community: a family bonded together for a purpose much larger than ourselves—to help fund cures for the millions of American’s living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. With every move we make and finish line crossed, we get closer to a world free of IBD.
