Cowboys vs. Crohn’s

Posted on 18th September 2013 at 16:03

Two cousins from Montana are making a trek from Gardiner, Montana to Bellingham, working to raise awareness and money for the battle against Crohn’s Disease and Colitis. Nick Roach and Jack Chambers are “Cowboys versus Crohn’s,” and are trying to raise $100,000 for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. The “Cowboys” are involved in this after graduating from Gonzaga University, and decided to do this as a way to meet people, experience the Northwest, play live music and raise money for this cause. They had intended to do the entire 1,300-mile route on horseback, but had to switch to bikes about halfway through, because their horses started breaking down. Rather than cause permanent medical problems for the horses, they decided to switch to bicycles for the remainder of the trip. The “Cowboys versus Crohn’s” started their trip in July, and hope to finish in Bellingham by the end of this month. Roach and Chambers are also speaking at today’s Noon Rotary meeting.
