What is Step Up for Ostomy?

Every three years ostomy associations and organizations around the world celebrate World Ostomy Day. On October 2, 2021, it will be the 10th time this event is taking place in the world.

In Canada, Ostomy Canada will be hosting Step Up for Ostomy in conjunction with World Ostomy Day. Step Up for Ostomy will be a Canada-wide event to raise ostomy awareness and collect funds to help Ostomy Canada continue their incredible service to the ostomy community. Donations will help ostomates and their families by helping them to live life to the fullest through support, education, collaboration, and advocacy.

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 for Canadian Ostomates.

Nightingale Medical Supplies is proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the event. We are excited to be supporting Ostomy Canada in being Canada’s voice for people living with an ostomy!
