SUPPORT MY JOURNEY IN MAKING IT STOP
Dear Family and Friends,
I have bored many of you with stories of my running and my pursuit of a personal best and the finish line. Today I am writing about a much more important pursuit, and a very different type of finish line.
Not too many years ago, one of my children and my wife were diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Since then I have sat on the sidelines as I watched their bodies attack themselves, leading them to suffer from severe pain and discomfort. The constant visits to the doctor, the pills, the infusions left me feeling helpless. With 1 in 150 Canadians suffering from Crohn;s and Colitis, watching helplessly from the sidelines could not represent my personal best. I want to stop the suffering. Unlike in running, this is not an individual endeavor, and you can help me in reaching my destination.
Your support is key in stopping the pain. I will continue this pursuit until this goal is realized.
Support me on the Gutsy Walk and you'll help put a stop to the pain, the surgeries, and the missed moments caused by Crohn's and Colitis. Together we'll make it stop for life.
Thank you for showing you have the guts to make it stop. For life.
