How You Can Support #StepUpforOstomy

Ostomy Canada is hosting #StepUpforOstomy in conjunction with World Ostomy Day this year! It is a campaign to raise awareness about ostomy and collect donations for the Ostomy Canada Society.

On October 2, 2021, ostomates, their friends and family all across Canada will 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. This year, Ostomy Canada is aiming to raise $50,000 to support Canadian Ostomates.
