We are excited to announce that vintage pin-up model and influencer Scarlett Luxe will be opening WALK IT Plymouth on Saturday 13 July.
Internationally recognised model Scarlett Luxe was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease at the age of 15 and has been using her social platform to raise awareness of the condition.
Most recently, Scarlett is taking to the sky in a sponsored sky dive for Crohn's & Colitis UK!
In her classic vintage style, Scarlett won the first Miss Pinup UK competition in 2013, was crowned the Best Pin-up Model in 2015 at the National Vintage Awards and has been published in international magazines.
Scarlett will be joining thousands of people raising vital awareness and funds for those affected by Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis and will be taking part in the WALK IT event in the historic city of Plymouth.
It is a huge honour to be opening the WALK IT Plymouth event and to be supporting Crohn's & Colitis UK. Of course I will be at the event in true vintage style which is what helps me to feel like myself even when Crohn’s disease is trying to tear that down. I took part in the 10km Bristol event last year and it was so wonderful to all come together and support one another in our journey with these illnesses and show that we will not be defeated.
By signing up to WALK IT, you will be helping people living with Crohn's or Colitis find the confidence and support they need to speak up and will be helping to raise vital funds to find a cure.
The charity is here to support all of those taking part, whether they are in the middle of a flare, in remission or showing support for a loved one.
It takes guts to live with Crohn's and Colitis and that’s why the charity is bringing people together to march through the streets of Plymouth, Birmingham, London, Manchester, Edinburgh, and Newcastle this summer.
