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.
