LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Elizabeth Morgan-Maver, 2019 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair




My name is Elizabeth Morgan-Maver and I am grateful to have been selected as the 2019 Honorary Chairperson of the Calgary Gutsy Walk Chapter.

I was diagnosed with Crohn’s when I was 13 years old, but along with my own personal health journey, I’ve had the opportunity to gain insight into the incredible GI and IBD community. With my father working in GI, the completion of my Master’s degree in gastrointestinal sciences, and now as an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner student, I’ve also seen the research and healthcare aspects of managing IBD.

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is a leader in supporting patient programs and funding critical research. I’ve been fortunate enough to have connected with this inspiring group of volunteers and workers, and contribute in my own way by supporting events like the Guts N Glory Football tournament. I’m now proud to call Calgary home, and have to thank my husband for his continued support and leadership in volunteering with CCC as well.

IBD can be a complex and challenging journey and I’m grateful for my “team” of family and friends providing me with their continued support. The Gutsy Walk provides us all with a chance to come together as an even bigger team to help support a cause near and dear to many of us.
