What your support means

Your fundraising efforts will enable Crohn's and Colitis Canada to directly support:

- Research: Breakthroughs are only possible thanks to your contributions - as was the case with the recent findings of the GEM Project!

- Programs: Whether it's the Crohn's and Colitis Connect program, the peer support program, or the provision of expert-approved educational resources through the Gutsy Learning Series, the Gutsy Walk is the key to bringing these programs to life.

- Advocacy: Whether it's calling for increased bathroom access with the AllezIciMD app, or simply shedding light on these invisible diseases, the Gutsy Walk is a day for everyone to talk about the realities of living with Crohn's disease or colitis.

How to get involved

Walk: Be there on Sunday, June 2, for the Gutsy Walk, presented by Triple Boris! Raise awareness on the day by proudly wearing your t-shirt (tip: raise $150 for this year's exclusive t-shirt, and share your photos and videos on social networks).

More than 322,000 Canadians live with some form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This is already an impressive number, and is expected to rise to 470,000 by 2035.
