Kelsey Nasello

Help me find a cure! I'm undertaking the Live Fearless Challenge this September

I'm putting on my sneakers to achieve 150kms and raise awareness and much needed funds for people like me living in Australia with IBD.

As some of you may know I have been living+suffering=fighting Ulcerative Colitis since 2011 (age 19) and it has been a very bumpy roller coaster. It effects every aspect of my life and there is very little awareness or understanding in the community for this Disease and how life changing it really is. There is also no known cause OR cure, hopefully we can change this!

Before this disease took over my life I loved all forms of exercise and was very active, I really enjoyed it and also the Benefits this had on my mental health. Unfortunately any form of exercise has been next to impossible since diagnosis. In the last 9 months I have slowly been able to introduce walking and am really enjoying it and all the Benefits this is having physically and mentally. I’m looking forward to my walking not only helping me but lots of others! 

All donations go towards Crohn's & Colitis Australia who provide research, education and advocacy programs for people like me living with IBD. 

As I tackle this physical challenge, it will help to know that you have supported me with even a small donation. Please help us find the cure for these terrible diseases. 

All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Thank you to my Sponsors
