Co-Founder and Director of National Sales, Dave Vancellette, ran a half marathon benefiting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) on July 15, 2012. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases. Crohn’s disease is a chronic disorder that causes inflammation of the digestive or gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Ulcerative colitis on the other hand, affects only the colon. It is estimated that as many as 1.4 million Americans have IBD; however, many more suffer in silence due to potential embarrassment and alienation. Crohn’s disease may occur in people of all ages, but it is primarily a disease of adolescents and young adults, affecting mainly those between 15 and 35. Not only does the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America raise crucial funds toward the goal of finding a cure, it’s an invaluable resource for patient support, information, and education.
Mr. Vancellette, who’s sister Erin has suffered with Crohn’s for 15 years, reached out to TCV’s preferred real estate agents and appraisers for donations. In response, the following TCV vendors generously donated to the CCFA:
