Gutsy Walk™

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 70 locations from coast-to-coast to ensure Canadians can participate no matter where they live.

The $2.5+ million raised by over 4,000 participants in 2022 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 will bring us closer to cures.

For many people living with Crohn’s or colitis, the Gutsy Walk is their first time meeting others with these diseases. Other participants simply find it inspirational to see this community 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.

By supporting the Gutsy Walk, you’ll be helping to build 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.

Together as one we walk to stop Crohn’s and colitis. Join us for next year’s Gutsy Walk on Sunday, June 4, 2023.
 
Registration will open in November.
