For the 9th year in a row, NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation), as part of its Gives Back program, is honored to be a sponsor of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA).

This year, the Crohn's & Colitis, spin4 Pedal With a Purpose, is returning to in-person events in cities across the country, with social distancing measures in place, and will bring together the IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) community on Sunday, November 14th. This premier indoor cycling event has raised millions of dollars to find a cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and provides support for millions of Americans living with inflammatory bowel disease.

For those without an event within driving distance, the nationwide virtual event will be held on December 4, 2021 (and you don't need a bike at home to participate virtually).

In the past, this event has raised millions of dollars to find a cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and provided support for the more than 3 million Americans living with IBD. Vital funds are needed for research, education and support for the 1.6 million Americans suffering from Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis – two debilitating digestive diseases that affect 1 in 200 Americans with as many as 150,000 under the age of 18. CCFA continues to make scientific advances in the fields of genetics, immunology and microbiology, leading to a greater understanding of the disease.

NAM Gives Back continuously strives to help make a difference by getting involved with various charitable organizations and events throughout the year and is a strong supporter of children and families who struggle with Crohn's & Colitis. Additional charities that NAM has supported include: Alley Oop for Autism, Autism Speaks, Charley's fund, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Toys for Tots.
