I'm Gutsy Because...

There are lots of reasons why people take part in the Gutsy Walk: to make the future brighter for kids with Crohn's or colitis, to raise money for research, to support a friend or family member, to show that we can be stronger than inflammatory bowel disease.
What drove you to join the Gutsy Walk? Show us with a video that starts off with "I'm gutsy because..."
Tell us why you walk, who you walk for, or what you want people to know about Crohn's or colitis. Be as straightforward or as outlandish as you like. Just keep it under one minute, put it up on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #GutsyWalk, and tag @getgutsycanada in the post.
Post your video between Monday, May 8 and Friday, May 12 and it could be featured on our national social media accounts.
May 8-12 is also a great week to kick up your fundraising. For every $100 you raise during the week, you'll be entered into a draw for the Grand Prize of a $250 gift card and a Gutsy Walk prize pack. We'll be drawing additional winners to receive some Gutsy Walk swag too. The more you raise, the more chances you'll have to win.
Crazy idea - use your "I'm gutsy because..." video to direct people to your Gutsy Walk fundraising page. Your video and your fundraising page can work wonders together.
Thank you for showing us your guts.
You know what we mean.
