Volunteers needed for annual Gutsy Walk


Volunteers needed for annual Gutsy Walk

Editor,

Volunteers are needed for the planning of the Gutsy Walk in support of Crohn's and Colitis Canada taking place on Sunday, June 2 at Walkerton District Community School. 

Funds raised will go 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 from Grey and Bruce counties raised over $41,000. The 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 event. The commitment is four to five meetings, one per month from January to May, as well as on Walk Day, June 2. 

The meetings take place in Walkerton and anyone interested in volunteering is asked to contact Cindy at cindymatthews1957@gmail.com or call 519 635 3764. 

Let’s make it stop. For life. 

Cindy Matthews
​Media Chair / Secretary Grey Bruce Gutsy Walk
