  • Gutsy Walk

    1000 Kiwanis Park Dr, Kitchener, ON N2K 3N8 - Kitchener
    Our 25th annual Gutsy Walk will be held Virtually on August 23rd, 2020. Every walk is fun-filled, family-friendly, and non-competitive. Route lengths vary, but are typically five kilometers. Participants can walk any distance they’re comfortable with from the comfort of their own home! Join the Walk! This is Canada’s largest community event for Crohn’s and colitis. Since 1996, Canadians from coast to coast have stepped out – rain or shine – in support of our cause. The Gutsy Walk has raised over $45 million for research and programs, all thanks to participants, donors, and sponsors who are driven to make a difference.

  • Run for Hope

    The mission of the 2020 Run for Hope is to raise funds for the advancement of biomedical research in the search for cures for chronic diseases, including childhood cancer. Individuals everywhere are affected, and the list is seemingly endless: numerous types of cancers; neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's; genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophies, among many others. Significant progress has been made in combating these diseases, yet many still lack absolute cures. We are striving to change this, and we're motivated by everyone who is affected.
