Gutsy Walk 2017 - Gutsy Walk 2017
Welcome to Derek McKay's page


Dear Friends,

I have been involved with the CCC Gutsy Walk for a number of years now and I am proud to participate again this year.  Many of you have so generously supported my walk in past years and I hope I can count on your support this year.

Be GUTSY with me! On Sunday, June 4, 2017, I will be GUTSY walking alongside over 23,000 walkers across Canada to help stop the pain, multiple surgeries, and missed moments.

One in 150 Canadians live with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis - a rate that ranks among the highest worldwide. Even more alarming is the rate at which children are being diagnosed: Crohn’s disease has doubled in kids under 10 years old since 1995. Families new to Canada are developing Crohn’s and colitis for the first time – often within the first generation.

It takes guts to make it stop. Help make it STOP by making a donation today. Every dollar you donate counts towards Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s investment in transformational research, patient programs, advocacy, and awareness so that every child and adult with these diseases can live life to the fullest, and ultimately, be cured.

Thank you.  With our combined efforts we can make it stop. For life.
