Abbotsford is among the communities across Canada participating in the 20th anniversary Gutsy Walk on Sunday, June 7 to raise money for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada (CCC).

The walk takes place at Mill Lake Park, with registration getting underway at 9 a.m. and the walk starting at 10 a.m.

The goal is to raise $3 million across Canada for research into the treatments and cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as to support patient programs, advocacy and awareness.

Crohn’s and colitis are lifelong diseases that result in unrelenting pain, urgent bathroom visits, hospital stays, and multiple surgeries.
