Hi! My name is Kade, I am 6 years old. I have had ulcerative colitis since I was just 2 1/2. When I fell good, I love to go skiing, camping, and skating with my family - I am really fast now! Colitis sucks because I have to go to the bathroom A LOT, it's painful and it makes me stay home from school. I had to stay in the hospital for 5 months when I was diagnosed. I didn't get to see my brother and friends. I take medication every day and I often have to go get "pokes". People always tell me that I am a trooper but I am just trying to do the things my brother does. I have great friends and family who help us raise lots of money for CCFC.

With your help, we will find a cure soon.

My name is Kate and I am 15 years old and I live with ulcerative colitis. I may look like a normal teen from the outside but in the inside my body is at war. I am strong and want to be treated like a normal teen. For young girls my age with IBD, don't let this illness stop you from what you love to do the most and keep on living your dream. This experience has changed my life. Today I bring awareness of IBD to others, so teenagers like me no longer have to be silent about their symptoms. Education is power! We need to talk about it! I am walking for a cure in the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation Gutsy Walk on June 9, 2013. Join me and others to find a cure!

My name is Jacob and I am 4 years old. Two years ago, I became very sick. I had no appetite, no energy and lost a lot of weight. After 6 months of being examined by many doctors, being poked by many needles and being scoped twice, I was finally diagnosed with a form of irritable bowel disease called ulcerative colitis. Since then it has been a challenging journey for me, taking many medications, vitamins and other supplements on a daily basis in order to keep me healthy and growing. My family and friends showed their love and support by joining me in the Gutsy Walk last year. This will become an annual tradition for us in hopes that we will find a cure for this disease.

My name is Sherry Anderson. When I was first diagnosed 19 years ago, I didn't know what I was in for. There were not a lot of medical options, support or awareness like we have today. Crohn's disease is a mixture of normality in times of flare up. When the disease is active it can be unpredictable consisting of extreme pain, uncertainty, emotional stress and physical and mental fatigue. Living with Crohn's disease has given me strength and courage to face whatever comes my way. I am very blessed to have amazing support. I would like to reach out and offer compassion and understanding to others who suffer with colitis & Crohn's disease. New advances in medicine have started to show that a person can have their life back by extending times of remission. Please support colitis and Crohn's disease research for new medications

My name is Greg Ronne. I am honoured to be the Honourary Chair for the Lethbridge 2013 Gutsy Walk. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in the spring of 1986. Over the years, I have had many good times and bad times, but the important thing is the support of family & friends. For the past 12 years, I have actively participated in, and been a Top Pledge Earner for the Gutsy Walk, formerly the Heel ’N’ Wheel-a-thon. With the funds raised we have moved closer to finding the cure for IBD but we’re not there yet, so let's not sit by and wait for a cure to arrive. Please join me in walking on June 9, 2013 at Henderson Lake Park, because, I believe, together we will find the cure for IBD.
