"WALK IT was fun, rewarding and in some respects educational for me and I fully encourage anyone considering volunteering to go for it and sign up now!"

Grace started volunteering with Crohn's and Colitis UK at WALK IT London in 2017 and joined as a volunteer with the Kent Network after the event.  


I was inspired to get involved in the work of Crohn’s and Colitis UK in support of my friend Rory, who has Crohn’s Disease. I signed up to volunteer at WALK IT London, Crohn's and Colitis UK's flagship event. 

Seeing the enthusiasm and determination of participants who passed me in Soho Square Gardens, where I was a route marshal, gave an incredibly uplifting atmosphere to the event.


My highlight from the event has to be hearing people sharing their personal stories back at the event village, reminding me exactly why I had decided to volunteer.

Since the event, I have had the opportunity to join as a volunteer with the Local Network in Kent. WALK IT was fun, rewarding and in some respects educational for me and I fully encourage anyone considering volunteering to go for it and sign up now! It’s a family friendly day and a great way to learn new skills as a volunteer.
