As a tribute to Colleen, and to aid in the effort to discover the cause of biliary atresia, her family has organized this annual
community fundraiser. Colleen's BA 5K has raised and donated over $130,000 in five years! Through the Colleen Mitchel
Memorial Fund, we fund efforts to raise awareness for organ donation in our community and for research at Johns Hopkins
into the root cause of biliary atresia (BA) and improving outcomes of children living with liver disease and post-transplant.
We appreciate your participation! Thank you again for registering, donating, volunteering and sponsoring! We could not do this without you! Look for additional fundraisers throughout the year!

Colleen Mitchel attended Grace Episcopal Day School in Kensington and Walter Johnson (WJ) High School in Bethesda. Colleen
was born with biliary atresia (BA), the most serious liver disease of infancy and childhood, and died in 2013 at age 19 due to complications with liver disease. She was a sophomore at the University of Michigan. As a tribute to Colleen, and to aid in the
effort to discover the cause of biliary atresia, her family has organized this annual community fundraiser. Proceeds support BA research at Johns Hopkins Pediatric Liver Center in Baltimore, Maryland and organ donation awareness in our community.
