This year’s Napa-Sonoma run was bigger and better!  Team Challenge showed up and showed out with over 700 participants and collectively raising more than $2.6 million dollars for CCFA!! If that’s not enough to make you teary-eyed, then perhaps you should have been there to hear the honored hero, Chayla Fisher, speak of her lifelong struggle  with ulcerative colitis and how she will NOT be broken.  Chris Colette, leadership award winner, displayed pure love and devotion for his family and their joint battle against the disease on behalf of his son, Sam.  I am SO  impressed with the quiet strength of this young man and his family’s commitment to finding a cure.

To the countless number of participants WHO ARE ALSO PATIENTS…you are phenomenal! I know the feeling you had once you crossed the finish line and I am so proud of each and every one of you! See you next year??

As always, here are just a few photos:
