You're not alone: Kelowna has a vibrant Crohn’s and colitis community, made up of people with inflammatory bowel disease, families, volunteers, and more. Throughout the year, we come together at meetings and events like the Gutsy Walk to share experiences, raise funds and heighten awareness.

There are an estimated 1,300 people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis in the Kelowna community. We understand the challenges you and your family may be facing – because we face them, too.

Join us for our monthly chapter meeting and information sessions.  We meet at the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce from 7:00 - 9:00 PM the third Tuesday of each month.  Please note we take a break during the months of July, August and December.
