WALK IT is the new nationwide walks initiative from Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
Consisting of six fantastic walks around the country, the campaign is focused on raising awareness and vital funds for the charity, to help support those living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), of which Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two main forms.

With picturesque routes from 5-10k, mums and families are invited to WALK IT to help raise funds and support the 300,000+ UK residents currently affected.
