Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week 2020

Crohn's and Colitis Awareness Week is over for another year. But we'll be back in December 2021!

Here's what we got up to 1st-7th December 2020.

In a difficult year for many, we are overwhelmed by the support of our community and proud of how we have made it through so far. 

To celebrate the week, we'll be asking you to make a difference in a new way each day. From new ways to give to new people to tell, and from it takes guts to In My Shoes, we can't wait to see you all getting involved!  

Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday | Saturday | Sunday | Monday |
