Crohn's and Colitis Walk 2013

This post is a bit of a personal one. Two or three years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease, this is where a person's immune system attacks their gastrointestinal tract which leads to very painful stomach aches. This post is not a sob story or for sympathy but to raise awareness. Before I was diagnosed I had never heard of it and I now realise many other people haven't either so its important to raise awareness.

There is no known reason as to why people develop Crohn's Disease which is why research into this is so important. This leads me on to the Crohn's and Colitis walk 2013. I took part in the 3 mile walk in London last year and it turned out to be a great day! The weather was amazing and the atmosphere was great. But the main thing, people were asking me what the walk was about and I was able to explain and raise awareness (goal achieved)! 
SO, since I enjoyed it so much last year I will hopefully be taking part this year on the 22nd June at Victoria embankment. Its a great day out and if you see a bunch of people walking around London in red t-shirts that's us :)
