Gutsy Walk 2014

On June 8th Christine Bartram and I walked the 3.5 km Gutsy walk at Parc Maisonneuve Sherbrooke QC, to represent out team the “QC IBD Support Group”
Our team was a late entry therefore we only had time to raise $150 however every little bit helps in the Journey to find a cure!
The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Canada had a Goal to raise $3,100,000 they Achieved an amazing : $3,031,425!

It was a great day I was glad to see all the support and am looking forward to next years walk!


Hey sorry guys, I was almost done the video the other day when my wonderful laptop decided to died (totally didn’t spill tea on it or anything ‘_’ ) Sadly this means the video I had worked on and almost completed died along with the hard drive 😥
This being said I now  have to re-edit the entire video but don’t worry yes i still have all your videos clips you sent saved on a USB… well as they say “Shit happens , Wipe your ass and get over it” ,then do it all again! haha

I Also had a thought , If i selected a few of you whom sent videos to have more of a role in the overall video would any of you be excepting of that?
This role would consist of…

I would send you a sentence’s or so to read , you would film your self reading it then send me the video! simple , let me know if you are interested in participating in that!

Seeing that i now have to re-edit the video i might as well expect a few more videos from you guys here is the info:


  • Send two videos of yourself or a loved one whom has IBD, one with you just saying “I have Cronh’s Disease or I have Ulcerative colitis” and a separate video of you saying “We have IBD”


  • If you feel more comfortable, you or your loved one may hold a sign with the words written, which again would be, “I have Cronh’s Disease or I have Ulcerative colitis” and a separate video and sign saying “We have IBD”.
Let us show how diverse the IBD community, IBD can effect ANYONE ! Of any age, race, gender or life style equally it does not discriminate! share this post to spread the word!
