In 2022, you helped raise over $85,000 (and counting). Thank you for your incredible support….see you in 2023
Every year, Canadians across the country celebrate “living life to the fullest” by participating in a national awareness and fund raising event called Step Up for Ostomy (www.stepupforostomy.ca). Typically held on the first Saturday of October people living with an ostomy invite their friends and family to walk, run, roll, slide, hop, dance, sashay, prance, bike, jump, strut, twirl, skip, chill, play cards, or whatever to raise funds and awareness for Ostomy Canada. In 2020 and 2021 the Step up event was primarily held “virtually” to abide by public health guidelines. Our hope is that in 2022 we will broaden our outdoor activities and yet we will always respect our public health rules and the safety of our stakeholders.
This amazing cross Canada event will raise much-needed funds to help us improve the quality of life for people living with an ostomy in every province and territory. Visit our website www.stepupforostomy.ca to find out more and to download such items as the Planning Manual, FAQ, pledge cards, forms and all kinds of support tools.
