Third Annual Team Intestinal Fortitude Event

By: Jake Marcus
 
Good day all.  We are fresh off our Third Annual Auction and Raffle Event and it was definitely a success.  The event started at 6:30PM on Thursday, March 14th at Thorny Lea Country Club in Brockton, in the main ballroom.  In past years, we hosted the event at L O C O Tapas Restaurant in Easton, MA which has served us as a great venue, but as we started to reach capacity in ticket sales we opted to move to a larger venue.  Thorny Lea was definitely spacious wit...

Kicking Off the Third Year of Fundraising!

By: Jake Marcus

Hi all, it’s been a long time since I’ve last updated this blog but that does NOT mean that Team Intestinal Fortitude hasn’t been active. In fact, it’s been quite the opposite as we embark on our third year of fundraising.
                To close out 2012, we ran the Las Vegas Rock n’ Roll Marathon under Team Challenge. At every one of these events I meet great people and this year was no different. For all you Bachelor fans, this year we were given a bouq...

Gillete Stadium Flag Football and Manchester marathon

By: Jake Marcus
Hey everybody, I haven’t posted a blog in a few months but I have a lot of exciting updates to write about…
First, I’d like to talk about a new young group that has been started in for the CCFA New England chapter. The official name is TBD but the initial name was “Young Professionals Club of CCFA” and now we are thinking of calling it the “CCFA Junior Board of Directors”. We held monthly meetings in the summer to get the ball rolling a little bit but now we off...

Restroom Access Bill Passed!

It's been a while since I've posted but the big news is that the Restroom Access Bill (HB-2366) has passed in Massachusetts!  My father and attorney (and now president of CCFA New England BOD), Stephen Marcus, played a large role in implementing this bill.  With numerous e-mails to our Team Intestinal Fortitude team, he rounded up the troops in making the calls and spreading the word about this bill.  Various other members, both on Team Intestinal Fortitude or friends, made an impact in gett...

Fundraising the Family Way

A family that fundraises together, changes lives together.  If you need proof, just ask Stephen Marcus and his Boston-based family.  After his ulcerative colits was in remission for 30 years, Stephen's IBD returned but this time it was Crohn's.  Stephen said it was then that his now 22-year-old son Jake Marcus began fundraising on behalf of Crohn’s research, and later participating in several Team Challenge events as an avid runner.  

"Jake decided he would put together a team called Team Int...
