Gutsy Walk

Gutsy Walk Team
Join us on Sunday, June 6th for our 26th annual virtual Gutsy Walk!

Thousands of Canadians from coast to coast are taking part in the virtual event to create awareness and raise funds all while showing support and celebrating the 270,000 Canadians living with Crohn’s disease or colitis.
 
Gutsy Walk is Canada’s largest community event for Crohn’s and colitis. Since 1996, Canadians have stepped out – rain or shine – in support of our cause. The event has raised over $46 million for research and support programs, all thanks to participants, donors, and sponsors who are driven to make a difference.

Gutsy Walkers are encouraged to take part by going on their own walk in their community, whether it be their neighbourhood or a local park while staying within their bubble, to showcase their support for people living with Crohn’s or colitis all across the country. Gutsy Walkers typically walk 5KM, but any distance and any activity done in your community on the day of is just as important! 

We’ve made a lot of progress over the years, but we aren’t done yet. You can join the Gutsy Walk community while helping us make progress to stop Crohn’s and colitis.
