Every year, tens of thousands of Canadians take part in the Gutsy Walk, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s largest single day fundraiser. The event takes place in over 60 locations from coast-to-coast, including virtual events to ensure Canadians can participate no matter where they live.
The $3.5 million raised in 2016 was instrumental in Crohn’s and Colitis Canada's ability to improve the lives of everyone living with these diseases through patient programs, advocacy, and research into new and better treatments, which bring us closer to cures.
For many people living with Crohn’s or colitis, the Gutsy Walk is their first time seeing and meeting kids, adults, and families impacted by these diseases. Other participants simply find it inspirational to see their communities come together to support people who have inflammatory bowel disease. Too often, people with Crohn’s or colitis live in isolation, but the Gutsy Walk can be the first step towards finding out how others are living well in spite of these diseases.
Support the Gutsy Walk, and you’ll be supporting something bigger than a one-day event. You’ll help put a stop to the pain, the surgeries, and the missed moments caused by Crohn’s and colitis.
It takes guts to make it stop - join us for the next Gutsy Walk on Sunday, June 4, 2017.
