Kleenway to Attend the 2013 Gutsy Walk

  Apr 18, 2013


Gutsy Walk for Crohn's and Colitis - Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada

On June 9, Kleenway will be participating in the 2013 Gutsy Walk to raise money for the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). The CCFC is a national not-for-profit voluntary medical research Foundation, whose mission is to find the cure for inflammatory bowel disease.

Kleenway prides itself on its culture of corporate social responsibility, and the foundation of that culture is how we care for one another when we are facing health challenges. One in 150 Canadians lives with either Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. These are painful, debilitating diseases, collectively called inflammatory bowl disease (IBD), that currently have no known cause or cure.


Did you know?

  • There are an estimated 10,200 new cases every year in Canada

  • 2330,000 Canadians have IBD in comparison to people living with MS (65,000) and Cystic Fibrosis (4000)

  • Canada has one of the highest incidences of IBD in the world

  • 30% of all cases of Crohn’s disease affect children with a rise in children under 10 years of age

  • This disease can develop at any age

Together, with our fellow colleagues and families Kleenway will be participating this year as a workplace team in the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada’s (CCFC) largest & most exciting fundraising event, the Gutsy Walk.
