Mobile native Kristen Coats is raising funds for cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis by running the New York Marathon with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s Team Challenge program. Her goal is to raise $3,500 for critical research for better treatments and patient resources.
As part of this effort, Kristen is hosting Team Challenge Trivia Night on August 15th from 4-9 PM at Serda Brewing Co. during their trivia night. Trivia night is a weekly event well attended by many young professionals in Mobile, AL. Attendees will work as a team to try to win it all with their combined areas of expertise while helping to fund ground-breaking research, educational programs, and support services for patients living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
During Trivia and Pint Night there will be no fee to participate, Serda’s Brewing will donate $1 per pint of beer or glass of wine sold to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation on Kristen’s behalf. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase “Trivia Mulligans”, participate in a 50/50 raffle, and silent auction.
