Top Pledge Earners Club

We are incredibly grateful for the commitment and leadership of our Top Pledge Earners as their support is instrumental to our success as Canada’s leading non-governmental funder of research.

Top Pledge Earners commit to raising $1,000 or more for the 2022 Gutsy Walk as they share our strong desire to improve the lives of children and adults living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. As a member of this exclusive club, you’ll receive these great perks:

  • A gift card valued at $85 or more*
  • An invitation to join us on event day at the start line to kick-off your local Gutsy Walk
  • An exclusive Top Pledge Earners Club gift

*Please note: Crohn’s and Colitis Canada reserves the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value.

We encourage you to commit today to achieving Top Pledge Earner status.
