Date:1/28/2010

Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America Received a Donation of $10,000 For Every Touchdown Garrard Scored During the 2009 Season

NEW YORK, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) today announced the culmination of the second consecutive year of the In the Zone for Crohn's program, featuring David Garrard, quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars®(1) and support from Centocor Ortho Biotech to help the organization fund Crohn's disease research and education.  As part of the program, $10,000 was donated to the CCFA for every touchdown Garrard scored during the 2009 football season.  This season, Garrard accounted for 18 touchdowns, raising $180,000 for the CCFA.

Through Garrard's continued involvement in the In the Zone for Crohn's program and efforts on the football field over the past two years, he has raised funds that have allowed the CCFA to advance critical Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis research in order to make a profound difference in the present and future health of patients with these diseases.

More information about the In the Zone for Crohn's program and this season's results can be found at www.CrohnsintheZone.com.  Crohn's disease, combined with a related inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) called ulcerative colitis (UC), affects more than 1.4 million Americans.

"I have truly enjoyed partnering with the CCFA these past two years and am grateful to Centocor
