Pro Quarterback David Garrard Raises $180,000 for Crohn's Disease Education and Research During 2009 Football Season
Date:1/28/2010

Ortho Biotech for giving me the extra incentive to score touchdowns each week through their donations to the program," said David Garrard, quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars.  "Since being diagnosed with Crohn's disease several years ago, it has been my goal to raise awareness of this debilitating disease and to help inspire other people who are living with Crohn's disease. I want people to know that if I can overcome this condition and still live a happy and healthy life, they can too."

Despite Crohn's disease, Garrard continues to succeed on the field and has scored over 70 career touchdowns while playing for the Jaguars.  Garrard recently completed his third season as the team's full-time starting quarterback.

"It has been a pleasure working with David on the In the Zone for Crohn's program," said Richard Geswell, President of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.  "David has impacted a countless number of people through his inspiring story of overcoming Crohn's disease and his continued efforts to shed light on this often misunderstood and under-reported condition. With the continued commitment and generous donation from Centocor Ortho Biotech of $350,000 over the past two years of this program, the CCFA has been able to further its mission of improving the lives of children and adults living with these diseases everyday."
