Crohn's and Colitis Awards Dinner
Posted by GI Monitor
On December 7th, I'm co-chairing the CCFA New York Chapter's annual Modell's sports dinner. The honoree that I nominated for the Dick Schaap Excellence in Sports Award is David Lerner, a walk-on punter for the Florida Gators who was diagnosed with Crohn's in July. I've come to know David since he was diagnosed and was impressed that he battled through the onset of Crohn's, won the starting job and now calls kids with IDB to chat with them personally. You can read more about why I think David is so deserving of this and other awards here and you can see a video of his story below.
The event itself will be great - with MoC, comedian Robert Wuhl, celeb auctioneers Joe Piscopo and Steven Schirripa (from the Sopranos) and more. You can learn more about the event here
