Plea for volunteers – Crohn’s and Colitis ‘Gutsy Walk’

To the Editor:

On the morning of Sunday, June 2, 2019, residents from Grey Bruce will be participating in the GUTSY WALK for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada at Walkerton District Community School. Money goes toward research, educational programming, as well as raising awareness about Crohn’s and colitis, two auto-immune digestive disorders that impact 233,000 Canadians both young and old.

In 2018, 140 walkers raised over $41,000. Our fundraising efforts were recognized by the national office with an award for highest percentage increase across Canada.

The Grey Bruce Gutsy Walk committee is looking for volunteers to help plan the 2019 walk. The commitment is 4 – 5 meetings (one per month from January – May) as well as on walk day, June 2. We meet in Walkerton.

To indicate your interest in this committee or to learn more, kindly contact Cindy at or call 519 635 3764.

Let’s make it stop. For life.

Thank you.
