You’re not alone: Grande Prairie has a supportive Crohn’s and colitis community, made up of people with inflammatory bowel disease, families, volunteers, and more. Together, we share experiences, raise funds at the Gutsy Walk and heighten awareness.

There are an estimated 500 people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis in the Grande Prairie community. We understand the challenges you and your family may be facing – because we face them, too.
