The Short Bowel Syndrome Foundation for Children of New England, Inc. (SBSNE, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization which was created to provide family support for children afflicted with gastrointestinal conditions, birth defects, and diseases which have led to Short Bowel Syndrome (SBS) and their healthcare providers. SBSNE, Inc. has been created to promote awareness, provide parent-to-parent, financial, and educational support for families who have children who have been diagnosed with Short Bowel Syndrome, as well as providing at least 10% of all monies brought in to various researchers who are investigating the birth defects leading to and causes of Short Bowel Syndrome.
What is the purpose of the SBSNE, Inc. 5K Run/Walk?
We have goals of producing a Nutritional Supplement Program for our children's nutrition costs. Ultimately, we would love to help at least twenty families nationwide with a monthly stipend for one year. With your help and participation, SBSNE, Inc. will have the opportunity to provide families with stipends to go towards their child's nutrition (whether it be organic foods, tube feed, vitamins, electrolyte solutions, etc.). This stipend will be in the form of a gift card, which we hope to offer on a monthly basis.
SBSNE, Inc. appreciates your continued support and look forward to seeing you there!
