Crohn’s and Colitis Canada
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) describes a group of conditions, the two main forms of which are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. IBD also includes indeterminate colitis. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are diseases that inflame the lining of the GI (gastrointestinal) tract and disrupt your body’s ability to digest food, absorb nutrition, and eliminate waste in a healthy manner. The Gutsy Walk takes place on Sunday, June 7, 2020 at over 60 locations across Canada. Every walk is fun-filled, family-friendly, and non-competitive. Route lengths vary, but are typically five kilometers. Participants can walk any distance they’re comfortable with. Join a Walk near you! This is Canada’s largest community fundraiser for Crohn’s and colitis. Since 1996, the Gutsy Walk has raised over $35 million for research and patient programs, all thanks to participants, donors, and sponsors who are driven to make a difference.
