Lawrence Stephens is gearing up to run, sweat and trudge their way through 7km of mud in this year’s corporate mud-run to raise funds for our charity partner Chron’s & Colitis.

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two main types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It is estimated that over 500,000 people across the UK live with Crohn’s or Colitis. The illnesses are painful, debilitating, and widely misunderstood. When you have Crohn’s or Colitis, your immune system doesn’t work properly and the body starts attacking itself, causing ulcers and inflammation in the gut. Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis can affect anybody and almost every part of your body, from digestion and joints to energy levels and mental health. They can also impact many parts of an individual’s life – from education and work to relationships.

Jeff Rubenstein, Senior Director, comments: We’ve been proudly supporting Chron’s and Colitis UK as our charity partner for 2022. I am looking forward to seeing our ambitious team get muddy in our latest fundraising efforts and have no doubt that every penny raised will contribute to helping the lives of those living with these conditions.

Bethany Jacobs, Paralegal, comments: As someone who has personally used Chron’s Colitis’s services, I know just how invaluable the work they do is and I am thrilled to be taking part in Lawrence Stephens corporate mud-run to raise money and awareness around these illnesses.
