You're not alone: Lethbridge has a vibrant Crohn’s and colitis community, made up of people with inflammatory bowel disease, families, volunteers, and more. Throughout the year, we come together at meetings and events like the Gutsy Walk to share experiences, raise funds and heighten awareness.

There are an estimated 800 people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis in the Lethbridge community. We understand the challenges you and your family may be facing – because we face them, too.

World IBD Day

We are joining forces with over 50 countries across five continents for World IBD Day! From lighting landmarks to hosting events, patient organizations and their communities celebrate World IBD Day to raise awareness about inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and show support for all who are affected.

As the theme for this year's global campaign is 'Making the Invisible Visible', we'll be taking to social media throughout the day to:

  • ​Give tips on how you can start conversations about IBD amongst those unfamiliar with the disease;
  • Share stories from our passionate volunteers about conversations they started; and
  • Provide resources you can share with those looking to learn more about Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
You will also be able to find these helpful tips and resources on our website - stay tuned!

And, be sure to keep your on the sky as landmarks throughout the country will be illuminated in purple.​

Take part in the global initiative by snapping a photo of a local landmark, contributing your tips, and sharing the conversations you've started! When chiming in be sure to use #worldibdday2019 and #makingtheinvisiblevisible.

Lethbridge Chapter Meeting

Crohn's and Colitis Canada chapter meetings are an opportunity for the IBD community and their caregivers to come together, learn, share, and support one another. 

Our focus is to create awareness of these diseases locally, improve the lives of those living with Crohn's and colitis, to grow our volunteer base and to raise funds to invest in research, patient programs, advocacy and awareness.

Time will be set aside during each chapter meeting for networking and discussing topics relevant to living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. 

The Lethbridge Chapter meets the last Wednesday of each month unless otherwise stated. These meetings break for July, August, and December.

For more information on the Lethbridge Chapter, please contact Brenna Scott at bscott@crohnsandcolitis.ca or 403-700-1729.
