Canadians have more reason to be concerned about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis than anyone else in the world. Currently 1 in every 140 Canadians live with Crohn’s or colitis and every hour someone is being newly diagnosed with these diseases.

Crohn’s and colitis costs Canadians $1.28 billion annually and Canada has among the highest rates in the world. Our sponsors are an essential part of our Gutsy Walk community and key to us being able to one day find cures.

In a typical year, close to 20,000 Canadians participate in the Gutsy Walk and our participants are eager to engage with the companies that make Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s programs possible. Our comprehensive sponsorship benefits provide an opportunity for brands to further their direct reach into the community and focus on key markets to differentiate from their competitors.

As a company, here are some ways you can boost your brand through Gutsy Walk:

  • Become a 2022 Gutsy Walk sponsor
  • Form a corporate Gutsy Walk team to promote teamwork and community impact
  • Make a corporate donation
  • Encourage employee volunteerism
  • Match the contribution of your employees through a matching gift

By choosing Crohn’s and Colitis Canada as your partner, you’ll receive the following benefits:

  • An enhanced corporate image and reputation
  • Value added to your brand by visibly demonstrating your support for this cause
  • Key market targeting to differentiate your company from the competition
  • Positive publicity and heightened visibility
  • Knowledge that you are supporting a cause that is particularly important to your employees – after all, Crohn’s disease in Canadian children has almost doubled since 1995

We will also work together with your company to find creative opportunities to further engage your employees and clients through our many annual events!
