LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR
Aaron Coady, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair
My name is Aaron Coady, and I'm excited to participate in Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s fundraising event as the 2018 Gutsy Walk Honorary Chair, Avalon Region.
I am 15 yrs. old and a Grade 10 student at Mount Pearl Senior High, who is a competitive swimmer for the Mount Pearl Marlins Swim Team. As physcial activity and fitness is a huge part of my life, since my diagnosis of Crohn's last May, I’ve had to learn, to adapt and manage my diet, exercise regime and treatment according to my symptoms.
I’ve embraced the journey of living a “new normal” life with the support of my health care team, family and friends and Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. I have learned that I am resilient with the challenges I face, related to my disease and with determination, patience and strength, I can accomplish anything. I am proud to announce that recently, I successfully qualified for Eastern Canadian Swimming Championships being held in Windsor, ON.
Please join me on June 3, 2018 for The Gutsy Walk, to raise awareness and funds to assist in ongoing research, enhance treatments and support initiatives, with the goal of improving the lives of those affected wth Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
