My story

[p]Way back in 2009 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and things turned for the worst pretty quick afterwards. Very shortly after being diagnosed I was having emergency surgery to remove my colon, which resulted in my being given an ileostomy. Thankfully it wasn't all that bad though and 8 months later I was able to have the ileostomy reversed and have been living with am ileo-anal pouch ever since.[/p][p][br][/p][p]So 10 years later (since that's always a nice milestone) I thought I would try and help other people who are going through what I've experienced. I figured the best way to do that is to raise money for the charities that already help and helped me over the years.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I decided doing one event wasn't enough for a 10 year anniversary, so here I am doing 8 events, 1 every month between March (when my first surgery was) and October (my second surgery) to raise money for IA Support and Crohn's and Colitis.[/p][p][br][/p][p]The events I'm taking part in are: [/p][p]March - Tartan Warrior, 5K obstacle course race[/p][p]April - 13.1K Edinburgh Kilomathon[/p][p]May - Ochil Hills Sportive, 124K cycle[/p][p]June - Tour de Forth, 97.3K cycle[/p][p]July - Run the Blades, 10K trail run[/p][p]August - Beach Ballistic, 6K obstacle course race[/p][p]September - Spartan Sprint, 5K obstacle course race[/p][p]October - Tiger Escapade, 9K obstacle course race[/p][p][br][/p][p]There might be a bonus event if I get a place on Crohn's and Colitis Run the Night 10K...[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thanks for coming this far and reading my story, if you donate it is really, really appreciated as I know from experience these charities make a huge difference.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Thanks for everyone's support![/p][p]Chris.[/p]
