You're not alone: Kelowna 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 1,300 people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis in the Kelowna community. We understand the challenges you and your family may be facing – because we face them, too.
