Team Challenge Illinois



Team Challenge is an endurance sports training program. Participants raise funds for Crohn's and colitis research and patient services in exchange for training, support, and lodging and airfare to the event of their choice. (Airfare dependent upon program)

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Crohn's disease may affect as many as 700,000 Americans. Men and Women are equally likely to be affected, and while the disease can occur at any age, Crohn's is more prevalent among adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 35.

How will this project solve this problem?

In 2011, our mission-critical expenditures increased to $43.5 million from $39.2 million in fiscal year 2010. Eighty-two cents of every dollar raised in 2011, went toward research, education, and support.

Potential Long Term Impact

Joint alliances and databank resources have been developed to aid in finding the cause of and effective treatment for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Over 80% of CCFA grant recipients are still working in IBD research, and many have gone on to receive funding from the National Institutes of Health for further research. More than 77% of CCFA Research Training Award recipients are still involved in Crohn's and colitis research.
