As Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s largest research fundraiser, the Gutsy Walk has raised
over $50-million since it first began in 1996—these proceeds go toward advancing
research and the understanding of Crohn’s disease and colitis, which helps improve
quality of life for everyone facing these diseases and moves us closer to cures.
The fun-filled event is volunteer-driven with volunteer committees in 70+ locations
across the country, who help make Gutsy Walk possible!
You can show your support for the Gutsy Walk—even if you are not walking!—by
