The 18th annual Gutsy Walk in support of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada will take place June 9 at the Canadian Mennonite University.
Formerly known as the Heel ’n’ Wheel-a-thon, the Gutsy Walk raised $2.8-million across Canada in 2012. Their goal this year is $3.1-million across 57 Canadian communities.
The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada estimates one in 150 Canadians suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, meaning Canada has one of the highest rates in the world.
Registration is noon and the walk starts at 1 p.m.. There will be entertainment, a barbecue and face painting for children.
