Stoma Stroll 2017
Ostomy Canada Society
Saturday, October 7, 2017 is Canada Ostomy Day. And the Ostomy Canada Society will host the 5th Annual Stoma Stroll Awareness Walk in various cities across Canada. If you cannot find a walk in your area you can organize a team or participate as an individual in our virtual walk. The theme this year is "No Colon, Still Strollin!".
With your help, we can reach our goal of raising $25,000 nationally. All funds raised will go towards supporting our mission. Ostomy Canada Society is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to all people with an ostomy, and their families, helping them to live life to the fullest through support, education, collaboration, and advocacy.
Funds raised benefit the Ostomy Canada Society
