All proceeds from the event will benefit the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. Founded in 1967, CCFA is the leader in the fight against Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). By funding the very best in IBD research, CCFA has played a role in every major breakthrough in this field, including the study that identified the first gene specific to Crohn's disease, known as NOD2, and the initial research that led to infliximab, also known as Remicade®.
