ABOUT THE NEC SOCIETY

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating intestinal disease that affects thousands of families. In the US, about 500 babies die each year from NEC and thousands are left with lifelong complications like short bowel syndrome. NEC is one of many rare pediatric diseases with inadequate prevention and treatment options. 

The NEC Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to building a world without NEC. The NEC Society CIM runners are parents, friends, nurses, doctors, and community members who believe in bringing people together for a cause greater than ourselves.
