Come out and support the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation

Crohn’s disease is awful. The Mets are in the midst of an awful season. Let’s turn a double negative into a positive for a more than worthy cause. 

Before I go any further I just want to clarify that this is not an official 7 Line event. I don’t want to cause any confusion about that. This is an event that I am helping to organize with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation that would greatly appreciate some of The 7 Line army’s support.

This one hits home for me. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s 11 years ago and it’s been a roller coaster ride, to say the least, living with the disease ever since. I won’t dig too deep into my personal story with Crohn’s here. If you’d like, you can read about some of that HERE.

For better or worse, Crohn’s plays a big part in my life. For better or worse, the Mets play a big part in my life. I decided to bring the two together on Sunday, September 9 for a Mets-Phillies game. A chunk of the Big Apple Reserve (a section that 7 Line regulars are familiar with) has been set aside for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Tickets are $50 a piece and a portion of every ticket sold goes directly back to the foundation.

I know that might sound like a steep price considering how this season is going. Just remember that you’re donating to a great cause, sitting in one of the best sections at Citi Field and with any luck, we’ll get Jacob deGrom on the hill.

To learn more about the event and/or buy tickets, you can do so HERE.

If you would like to talk more about Crohn’s and Colitis please feel free to reach out. I’m more than happy to discuss all things related to the disease with anyone.

Today will feel weird for many of us who have Opening Day traditions at the ballpark. It sucks. There’s no way to sugarcoat it. We’re also 4 months into this COVID world. I think we’re all accustomed to hanging at home by now.
