Run to support Guts UK and Crohns and Colitis UK

Updated on: 20 May 2020   First published on 17 May 2020

Guts UK and Crohns and Colitis UK are facing a challenging time and have posted an urgent appeal to fundraise. Many Gastroenterologists and their patients have benefited from the funding that these two charities have provided in the past. A group consisting of Gastroenterologists, General practitioners and Health care professionals have come together to coordinate a virtual run for these charities.

How it works

We are asking anyone to participate in either a treadmill or local outdoor run, abiding by the current rules on social distancing please. We ask that you undertake this 5km run between the 12th and 18th June (inclusive) and then upload the details of your run and any exciting photos to twitter including in your post @GutsCharityUK @CrohnsColitisUK and #VirtualRunforGuts.

We encourage you to donate to anything you can to this website and ask your family in friends to either join in or sponsor you. Any received donations will be shared 50:50 between the two charities.

How to sign up

Entry will be via twitter (with a photo upload) #virtualrunforguts or on a Strava group. We also have a donations page for people participating to make a contribution.

Our supporters

Dr Falk UK are committed to supporting charities who have a focus on patient care.
