Welcome to our fundraising page!
The Pikes Peak Ostomy Association is a group of ostomates in Southern Colorado. We meet in person once a month in Colorado Springs, and we meet weekly via Zoom. Although there are many reasons why people have stomas, we are united in our community spirit and we manage to enjoy some levity as well!
This year, we have made a commitment to spend World Ostomy Day, Saturday, October 2nd, as part of a group of people who are empowering people who have had or who will have ostomy or continent diversion surgery. In order to fulfill this commitment, we are asking for your help.
On October 2, 2021, we will participate in the Virtual Run For Resilience Ostomy 5k. This is more than just a 5k race for us. The goal of these events is to raise awareness and to empower people who have had or who may some day have ostomy or continent diversion surgery. Funds will support United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that makes a difference in the lives of the 725,000 to 1 million Americans who have had ostomy or continent diversion surgery. These surgeries are life-saving, and have allowed many people to return to living a healthy life.
We are writing to ask you to support us as we train to participate in this 5k race. To find out more about the Run For Resilience Ostomy 5k please visit www.ostomy5k.org, and to learn more about UOAA please visit www.ostomy.org.
We are hoping to raise $2,000. You can help us achieve this goal and help us pay tribute to those who need our help. Please support our fundraising campaign by clicking the donate link to sponsor my efforts in meeting my fundraising goal, or click Register to join me!
Thank you for your support. Not only will you be helping me reach my goal, but you will help each and every person who has had or who may one day have ostomy or continent diversion surgery.
