(Boulder, Colo.)— Newton Running, the leaders in natural running footwear and education, is sending six employees to run the ING New York City Marathon on November 6 to raise funds for the Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the care, quality of life and treatment options for children with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

“Newton Running believes that every child deserves a healthy, active life and we are proud to do something about this disease that affects 1.4 million Americans and robs children of their energy and well-being,” says Wendy Lee, International Support and Social Responsibility Coordinator for Newton Running. Funds raised will support the Biome Genome Project, a research initiative into the causes and possible cures for pediatric inflammatory bowel disease.

Visit the Pediatric IBD Foundation pledge webpage to make a donation in support of Newton Running staffers Wendy Lee, her father and company CEO Jerry Lee, Vice President Anne Klein, Director of Field Marketing Doug Bertram and Regional Sales Managers Mark Rochon and Ryan Bassham. Donors who pledge $500 or more to the IBD Foundation will be automatically entered into a raffle to receive one of 10 free pairs of Newton Running shoes.

Plus when you purchase shoes at www.newtonrunning.com between October 6 and November 5, $1 goes to the Pediatric IBD Foundation.

Running alongside the Newton staffers at the New York Marathon will be triathlete Bo Parrish, who was diagnosed with IBD at age 13 and suffered from anemia, chronic fevers and other health issues until age 26, when he had an emergency colostomy and was outfitted with an external pouch. Parrish began running, biking and swimming and has since finished four Ironman triathlons and is a member of Team Timex. “Being so close to death taught me to make the most of every day,” says Parrish. “That includes raising awareness about this debilitating condition and supporting companies like Newton Running that want to make a difference.”
