Our Partners: IBD Family Research Council

The IBD Family Research Council (FRC) is a volunteer organization of families whose children have been cared for at the Center for Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease at CHOP. Organized in 2006, the group is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children with IBD and is committed to raising funds for research. Launched by the FRC in 2009, the Walk for Hope has become the group's annual fundraising event. It is the only major event in the greater Philadelphia area directly supporting pediatric IBD research.
