We have a vast network of more than 40 CCFA chapters and affiliates nationwide—each with its own volunteer board and Chapter Medical Advisory Committee.

The Hueston Woods Triathlon benefits charities which fund research for Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and Muscular Dystrophy. The event features a beach start swim, a scenic bike route which leads you though the countryside and the city of Oxford, and a quiet serene run on the Sugar Bush Trail of Hueston Woods. A perfect blend of terrain and events for all levels of competitors. A free kids fun run will also give the kids something to look forward to as they get a chance to run through the finish line and receive a medal and t-shirt.
Dealing with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as a child is even more challenging. That is why the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) proudly established Camp Oasis over a decade ago. This co-ed residential camp program enriches the lives of children with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis by providing them with a safe and supportive camp community.
