Make your Mark (mYm) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization partnered with the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America to raise money towards Crohn's Disease research. In the first year, mYm was able to raise around $3000. Make your Mark is now expanding beyond just one event. We will be holding camps, clinics, and small tournaments throughout the year. Our different events will vary, but overall we will work with girls and boys of all ages. We will also be expanding beyond basketball and hosting soccer events as well. Players will be able to receive prizes, mYm gear, and at some events well-known players will be attending including collegiate and professional players for the specific sport. Stay tuned for more information! It is time to make your mark in all that you do- whether on the basketball court, the soccer field, or in life.

mYm was created in honor of 15 year old, Mark W, who has had Crohn's Disease since he was 5 years old. He has been through his share of ups and downs, yet continues to be a happy and active teenager. Mark currently attends Princeton Day School in Princeton, NJ. He will be in the 10th grade for the 2014-2015 school year. In addition, he plays for MC Elite U14 AAU team. Mark has always had a strong passion for the game of basketball with his first idol being Allen Iverson and now LeBron James.
Make your Mark holds events to allow people to enjoy a fun day of sports, learning and competing, while also raising money for Crohn's Disease research. The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) has been actively helping in planning and contributing ideas regarding the event. All of the money raised from the events will go to the CCFA towards research to hopefully help change at least one person's battle against Crohn's.
Make your Mark is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that partners with the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America. All contributions to mYm are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. A receipt from Make your Mark will be emailed, but can be mailed(if preferred) to the donor organization following the event in June.
