[KARE-TV, July 09, 2014] Life has already given a Minneapolis woman a marathon, but Sonya Goins refuses to see the obstacles Crohn's disease has put in her path.

This week, even while hospitalized, Goins, 50, is determined to fight back by running a half marathon in Ireland to help find a cure.

Goins, 50, is currently at Abbott Northwestern Hospital suffering from complications but vows she'll make to the Team Challenge Rock 'n' Roll half marathon in Dublin, Ireland on August 4, where she will run to raise $6,000 for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America.
