IBD SuperHero and Ninja Warrior raises £1.3K to Cure Crohn's and Colitis

Crohn's Disease sufferer, physiotherapist and all round superhero, Lizzie Smith has spent the whole of 2016 pushing herself to the limit with a 10-kilometre run every month, as well as taking part in more than seven muddy obstacle courses that would put even the fittest human to the test, all in aid of raising money to find a cure for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis!

It's been quite year for IBD Superhero Lizzie, as she's battled through treacherous fundraising activities, had a car accident, taken part in ITV's Ninja Warrior UK (to be aired in the next few weeks), qualified for the European Obstacle Race European Championships, been a guest on BBC Radio Nottingham, moved house and bought a bunny, all whilst continuing daily mundane tasks like work and medical treatment for 5 hours every 8 weeks!

Listen to Lizzie's interview on BBC Radio Nottingham.

Lizzie is on a fundraising mission to find a cure for Crohn's and Colitis via #IBDSuperHeroes and has recently set up a Facebook page, 'Mud, Guts & Me' so that you can follow her journey. 

Lizzie says, "I want to inspire and empower to show that.... Obstacles, no matter what they are, don't have to stop you... If you run into a wall.. Don't give up..
Figure out how to climb it, get around it, go through it...or smash it HULK style... Please follow my journey fighting disease, raising awareness and being an OCR (Obstacle Course Racer)...
Conquer your obstacles..."

We think Lizzie is a shining example that... Not all superheroes wear capes (well, sometimes).
