RISEUp for Digestive Diseases: Walk, run, ride or roll

August 12th 2021/September 12th 2021

Walk, run, ride or roll for a reason.

Millions of people in Canada suffer from digestive disorders every year. If you suffer or know someone who does, you know how devastating these can be on your personal and professional life. Because people are uncomfortable talking about the symptoms and stigma associated with their bowels, important conversations are stopping before they begin. As a result, the life-changing and often devastating impact of digestive disease on Canadians remains undiscovered or worse, ignored. 

The ride is about gastroenterologists, students and members of the public coming together to raise funds to support awareness initiatives and research for the millions of Canadians who suffer from digestive disorders, and those looking for preventative, healthy solutions.

Kick-off Date: August 12, 2021
