Join a Gutsy Walk Near You!

Participants at Gutsy Walk
Our annual Gutsy Walk for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada will take place on Sunday, June 5, 2022 all across the country. 

Gutsy Walk is a fun-filled, family-friendly, and non-competitive day to walk in support of those impacted by Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. People typically walk 5km but any distance and any activity done in your community on the day of is just as important! Participants can walk any distance they’re comfortable with. Join a walk near you!
 
Living with IBD means living a life full of disruptions. That’s the case for over 300,000 Canadians already, and someone new is diagnosed with Crohn’s or colitis every hour. There are no known cures for Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, and that’s why we need you to walk with us.
