Gutsy Walk 2017

Hey all,

As you all know by now, I suffer from Crohn's Disease and it's had a pretty big impact on my life. About a year ago I started getting involved with Crohn's and Colitis Foundation Canada, and this year I'm participating in their Gutsy Walk. That's a 5k walk to raise awareness and funds for the disease to help develop better treatments and hopefully, one day, a cure.

If anyone's interested in reading more and perhaps giving a donation to support my part in the walk, you can head over to my donation page here.

Thanks!

    Shit, almost missed this. Nicely done on the donations and I hope the walk goes well.

    Somehow this slipped past me as well. Good luck on the 5k and congratulations on reaching your goal!

    Same to you as well Tim, thank you so much!

    I actually beat my goals several times and kept raising it; my original goal was $150!

    I'm the highest earning single pledge earner in my region thus far and the walks just over two weeks away!
