Mom and I are the Corporate Chairs for the
2016 Crohn's and Colitis Gutsy Walk and we need your help!
We are looking for local sponsorship for the annual Gutsy Walk. We are also looking for local companies to form Corporate Teams to raise funds but more importantly awareness for these diseases across Windsor and Essex-County.
The Crohn's and Colitis Gutsy Walk Event is on Sunday June 5th, 2016 across Canada and will locally take place at Lacasse Park in Tecumseh, ON.
This is the 21st annual walk, but the first year that the Windsor chapter will have major corporate involvement. This has always been a family and friends walk but we are reaching out to the business community to help elevate our walk to the next level. My goal for this year is to raise $100K through sponsorship and walk pledges. With your help Windsor and Essex-County will exceed this goal!

Canadians have more reasons to be concerned about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis than anyone else in the world.
- 1 in every 150 Canadians is living with Crohn’s or colitis – a rate that ranks in the highest worldwide
- Families new to Canada are developing Crohn’s and colitis for the first time – often within the first generation
- Most alarming, the number of new cases of Crohn’s disease in Canadian children has almost doubled since 1995
We NEED your support!! Crohn's and Colitis are very difficult diseases to diagnose, let alone treat. Many people go years before they are properly diagnosed. The money we raise on June 5th will help us get closer to Making it ALL Stop! For Life!
Until we find the cure and Make it Stop. For Life. Here is just one of the great ways Crohn's and Colitis Canada has used the funds raised to help improve the lives of children and adults affected by Crohn's and Colitis: The "GoHere" Mobile App.
