On Sunday, June 7th, 2015 we came together to walk in the first annual Gutsy Walk in Kelowna.
233,000 Canadians live with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. This fundraising effort will help stop the chronic pain and shame that comes with this disease. The event was about coming together for a common cause: to make the urgent bathroom visits, hospital stays and multiple surgeries stop.
We raised close to $23,000! This was made possible by the organizers from our lab, Bod, Nijiati, and Sandeep, along with volunteers and participants from our lab. Dr. Deanna Gibson walked with her family and spoke to participants about research at the Gibson Lab.
Here are some photos capturing the magic of the day:
