Lethbridge Gutsy Walk
Henderson Lake Park, Kiwanis Picnic Shelter
The Gutsy Walk is more than a fundraiser. It’s about community, meeting people who know what you’re going through and making connections. It’s also a chance to get together with family and old friends - all the while letting every Canadian affected by Crohn’s or colitis know that they are not alone. Register for the walk today!
It takes guts to take on Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, the two main forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Crohn’s and colitis are autoimmune diseases that cause the body to attack itself, leading to inflammation of all or part of the gastrointestinal tract. People with IBD endure abdominal pain, cramping, gas, bloating, fatigue, frequent and urgent bowel movements, internal bleeding, and unintended weight loss.
Living with IBD means living a life full of disruptions. That’s the case for over 270,000 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.
Every dollar you raise through the Gutsy Walk helps Crohn’s and Colitis Canada in our efforts to;
-Raise awareness of the diseases
-Provide support for patients and their families
-Advocate to governments and stakeholders on behalf of those affected by Crohn’s and colitis
-Fuel research that will lead to more effective treatments, and ultimately, the cures.
