Mission Statement

To raise awareness of Crohn’s and Colitis in the adolescent population and help children realize their personal and athletic potential despite being diagnosed with a chronic illness.

Description

Athletes vs. Crohn’s was founded in January of 2017 by Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. and pediatric IBD patient Noah Weber. Both Larry and Noah were diagnosed with Crohn’s disease during their adolescent years, both were aspiring athletes, and both sought mentors with Crohn’s disease who reached their athletic potential. Together, they hope to connect young people afflicted with Crohn’s and Colitis to athletes to inspire and mentor!To date, we have raised over $300,000 for IBD research, scholarship for high school athletes plagued by IBD, and mentorship programs and events aimed at connecting the Crohn's and Colitis community in Cleveland!
