LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Victoria, 2018 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair




Hi, my name is Victoria and I’m extremely honored to have been selected as the Honorary Chair for the 2018 Simcoe Gutsy Walk. I’m 15 years old and was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease just before my 9th birthday. Since then I’ve experienced many checkups at SickKids Hospital and have had several MRI’s. These visits are not always easy or fun, in fact they’re very emotionally difficult for me and my family. I have been fortunate to have only been admitted to the hospital twice. I take medication daily and try to eat as healthy as possible as well as trying to get regular sleep. These experiences have changed my life because it took time out of my childhood and it’s time I’ll never get back. My future goal is to raise enough money for the needed research and medications. I participate in the Gutsy Walk to raise more awareness in our local community and it’s a great experience to be a part of. I invite you all to join the journey with me and take action so we can do our best and raise awareness and the money we need for new treatments, research and cures!

Hope to see you June 3rd!

Victoria G.
