LOCAL HONORARY CHAIR

Kaylyn Heine, 2019 Gutsy Walk Local Honorary Chair




My name is Kaylyn Heine, and I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease when I was 11 years old after months of test, false answers, and hospital visits. I was happy to have a diagnosis, but scared to know I would be living with this disease for the rest of my life. My journey since then has been a long one. I have tried almost all of the available treatments, and have reacted badly to many medications. I was lucky enough to attend camp Got2Go which resulted in life long friendships, and it helped build back my confidence. Now I am in university, and I hope to graduate in three years. I am participating in the Gutsy Walk so more kids can go to camp, and then maybe someday we’ll find a cure. Join us, together we can improve so many lives.
