Welcome to our fundraising page!
This year, the Ostomy Support Group of DuPage County has made a commitment to spend Ostomy Awareness Day, Saturday, October 3rd, as part of a virtual 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 3, 2020, 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 will have a Zoom pep rally starting at 9:30 am on October 3. Please join us at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83004142150?pwd=c1p0d0VjTHV6elhDam1mZU9zamNpQT09.
We have set our fundraising goal at $1000. 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 our efforts in meeting our fundraising goal, or click Join to register and join us!
Thank you for your support. Not only will you be helping us reach our goal, but you will help each and every person who has had or who may one day have ostomy or continent diversion surgery.
