Champion Speed Skater and Survivor Urges Marathon Enrollment to Raise Funds

and Hope

NEW YORK, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout September and October, people from around the country can sign up to train for the ING Miami Half Marathon through the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation's Team Challenge program (http://www.ccteamchallenge.org). This fund raising program helps the Foundation come closer to finding a cure for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, painful and debilitating digestive diseases that afflict 1.4 million Americans. Sarah Lang, a retired veteran of the U.S. National Short Track Speed Skating team and digestive disease patient, is asking runners and walkers of all levels from all over the country to consider signing up for the January 2009 event in Miami Beach, Florida. Professional coaches will train participants over 16 weeks in communities all over the country before crossing the starting line in Miami Beach on January 25.

At 29-years-old, Sarah Lang was hospitalized with horrible gastrointestinal pain before receiving a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis. She was in her 11th year on the team and training for the 2006/2007 World Cup Season. Nevertheless, she remained positive and competed in the events -- coming in with her best career times and in the top five in the world in one event. "You can achieve something you didn't think was possible before," says Lang, talking from her experience about how a challenge can be managed. "The most important thing is to make the commitment to start and then work through preparation and training. I didn't think I'd be able to skate again after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis but then had the best results of my career."

The Team Challenge program trains participants through weekly training sessions by local professional coaches, along with clinics on fitness, injury prevention, nutrition a
