On June 10, team “DAG” participated in the annual Gutsy Walk for Crohn’s and colitis. The goal was to raise $80,000 in Manitoba and the total number reached was over $81,000. All participants were treated to a bbq and live band after the 4km walk which started at Canadian Mennonite University.
Glen Daman, who is the chairman for Crohn’s Colitis Manitoba, spoke before and after the walk and also presented the certificate for “Best Team Name.”
Nationally, over 12,000 people participated in the walk; the best year to date, and $2.8 million was raised in support of Crohn’s and colitis research. In Toronto, the CN Tower was even illuminated in red for an entire day in support of the walk. Thanks to all those who came out and mark your calendars for June 9, 2013!
