Centocor, Inc. announced today a partnership with David Garrard, quarterback of the Jacksonville Jaguars®, to raise awareness and funds for Crohn's disease education and research. Through the program, In the Zone for Crohn's, Centocor will make a donation of $10,000 to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America for each touchdown Garrard scores during the 2008 NFL season. More information can be found at http://www.CrohnsintheZone.com, where visitors can also track Garrard's progress throughout the season. Crohn's disease, combined with a similar inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) called ulcerative colitis (UC), affects more than one million Americans.
