Why Join Our Team?

Our teams raise money and awareness of Crohn’s disease. Many athletes who participate in Hope For Crohn’s events, have a personal relationship with someone who has Crohn’s disease. Others join us because they want to help Crohn's patients that suffer in pain daily due to this challenging disease. They share their sorrow, pray for their recovery, and believe in Hope for a cure.
Hope For Crohn’s® (HFC) invites you to help us raise awareness of Crohn's disease and generate funds for Crohn’s research by joining our Athletes For Crohn’s Team. We have made it easy to support the Hope For Crohn’s® while participating in an event of your choice. We will support you from the moment you sign up until you cross the finish line at your selected event. Being a part of our team will be of the most empowering and inspiring experiences of your life.

Coach Gomez believes that knowing the science of the body is as important as the psychology. He believes that you can have the best workouts, equipment, and advice available to you but in the end it means nothing if a coach/trainer cannot teach you how to change your psychology to reach your goals. Coach Gomez strongly believes this to be true based on his experience with clients which is why he has decided to pursue his Life Coaching Certification to better prepare himself to help people not only transform their bodies but also their lifestyle.
