The EFCCA purple team joins 20 km Brussels race in order to raise awareness about Crohn´s disease and Ulcerative Colitis.

For a third year running, EFCCA has organized a purple team made up of keen runners with IBD, IBD physicians and researchers, industry representatives as well as family members and supporters to run the 20 km Brussels race which this year took place on Sunday, 29 May 2016. The team of around 20 runners gathered together with supporters and EFCCA delegates at the park Cinquantenaire getting ready for this challenging race across the area around the EU institutions. A grey morning got onlookers a bit worried but many of the runners were actually grateful of the mild rain that refreshed the them throughout the race which saw a total participation of over 30 000 runners.
