Step Up for Ostomy events are happening Canada wide. Some of them are listed here

Calgary – The Step Up For Ostomy event will be held at the Inglewood Community Hall and features an awareness walk through the beautiful Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, followed by a BBQ lunch and Ostomy Expo. Participants will meet others with an ostomy or j-pouch, speak to ostomy industry reps, learn about new products, get free samples, and win prizes. The community hall will open to the public at 10 a.m. for registration. The event will run from 11:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., so plan to spend the day with us. Please join us for lunch even if you cannot participate in the awareness walk.

Regina – The Regina and District Ostomy Society will be holding a Step-Up Awareness and Fundraising Event. We will be meeting at 10 o’clock at the Community of Christ Hall, 4710 8th Avenue. We will have registration and collection of pledges (hopefully most done online). We will then either partake in a walk around the area, which includes our beautiful Government House, or will participate in chair yoga led by a yoga instructor. This will be followed by a lunch and socializing. We are asking people to wear their event t-shirts. For more information contact Patty at 306-535-8251 or patty.gianoli@sasktel.net
