NEW YORK, March 30, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rolling hills, vineyards, wineries, and farms will serve as the backdrop for hundreds of runners and walkers participating in the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon this summer with the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America's (CCFA) endurance training and fundraising program, Team Challenge. The race is sold-out to the public and the only way to gain entry is with Team Challenge. For three days only (March 30-April 1), Team Challenge is offering an April Fools' Day registration promotion for its Napa race- interested individuals can register to join Team Challenge for $1 (99 percent off) by using the promotion code ONEDOLLAR online.
"Team Challenge provides people with an opportunity to raise critical research dollars while training to do something that, for many people, they never imagined they'd be able to do- run or walk 13.1 miles," said Craig Comins, vice president of Team Challenge. "This amazing offer is no joke. We are offering the opportunity for people to register for Team Challenge with absolutely nothing to lose. You get to try out the team and don't have to commit to any fundraising until halfway through our program."
Team Challenge participants raise vital funds for research, education and support for the 1.6 million Americans living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis - two debilitating digestive diseases that affect 1 in 200 Americans. In exchange for fundraising, runners and walkers receive personalized training by professional coaches in local markets for an entire season, clinics and helpful tips on topics like nutrition, hydration, injury prevention and an expenses-paid weekend to a great destination race.
This is the ninth time that Team Challenge will participate in the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon. Last year, more than 600 Team Challenge runners and walkers from chapters across the country crossed the picturesque finish line and raised millions to support groundbreaking research of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
