Community

Though there are other charities for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, Connecting to Cure Crohn's and Colitis (C to C) has created a unique niche specific to bringing the IBD community together in a grassroots way. With a focus on caregivers and their families, we have created a community of support for those coping with these chronic illnesses, while raising much needed funds for research. The benefits of our efforts are spread amongst IBD related organizations.  We raise money through events, anything from small lemonade stands to our signature annual event Rock the Night to Cure Crohn's and Colitis, and from individual donors.

Achievements
To date, we have donated over 2 million to organizations and institutions for IBD research. The proceeds of our efforts have benefitted The Susan and Leonard Feinstein IBD Clinical Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and The Painted Turtle Camp in Lake Hughes, California.
 
We fund research that impacts the lifecycle of the disease, and works to gain a better understanding of why the diseases develop in children and adults. We are also committed to research that focuses on prevention strategies, especially in high risk individuals. For more information click here.
 
We are a proud sponsor of the Painted Turtle camp in Lake Hughes, California for kids and teens, ages 7 to 16, with IBD. Campers and their families attend free of charge. For more information or to apply to camp please click here  thepaintedturtle.org.
 

Together we can build a community around our shared goal of supporting patients and funding research for these chronic diseases.
