Going the Distance - and to Great Heights!


Every September for the past 28 years, our PEI Chapter has hosted a two-person scramble golf tournament to raise money for research. This tournament is a family-led yet strongly Chapter supported fundraiser spearheaded by Judy and Donnie Corrigan and daughter Michelle Doiron. It has raised over $530,000 in 28 years for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada and continues to be the largest fundraiser for the PEI Chapter.


Volunteers in St. George, NB enjoy sending Crohn’s and colitis “down the river” during Tubing for Tummies. This awareness and fundraising event sells tube rides down the St. Croix River, as well as bracelets and refreshments on-site. Necole Bradford, who owns the tubing company, started this event five years ago to support her husband Cory Leavitt, who has the disease.


In Saskatoon, Jordie Hughton, who has colitis, and 40 of his talented friends have hosted a fundraiser for the past five years called “Music 4 the Gut.” This year’s theme was “Together,” named for an original song written by one chorister about how we can tackle any problem by working together.


Ken Smith from Langley, BC celebrated his 90th birthday this year by jumping out of a plane to support Crohn’s and Colitis Canada and bring attention to the cause. Ken’s daughter Joni has been battling Crohn’s disease since she was 25 years old.
