Help us change the future for Canadians with liver disease! Join us for the Stroll for Liver –a family friendly, community-based walk/run event dedicated to raising funds for liver research and education.

1 in 4 Canadians may be affected by liver disease – Colby is one of them.

Colby Demerchant and his familyColby is a teacher, friend, brother, son, husband, and most importantly, a father. All his other accomplishments pale in comparison to his role as a father to his three beautiful children.

In 2006, Colby was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, and after a lengthy process of poking, prodding and drinking what seemed like gallons of vile tasting concoctions for several different tests, the doctors discovered that his liver functions tests were atypically high. A year later, in the summer of 2007, Colby was finally diagnosed with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) a liver disease in which the bile ducts progressively decrease in size due to inflammation and scarring.

With no known cure for PSC or even effective medications to slow its effects down, Colby’s goal is to raise funds for liver research to help find a cure for PSC and other liver diseases.

Join Colby in support of the millions of Canadians affected by liver disease.

Join for an evening of liver disease awareness and exercise.

The Cornwall Stroll for Liver is a family friendly, community-based outdoor 5km run or walk event in which individual or team participation is encouraged.

The event will take place at the St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor. This location connects to Cornwall’s Waterfront Trail, a multi-use recreation path that spans the entire city’s waterfront, offering stunning views of the Cornwall Canal and the St Lawrence River.

This is the first annual Cornwall Stroll for Liver. The goal of this event is to raise awareness of liver disease, organ donation and to raise much-needed funds to continue essential liver research.

The Stroll for Liver is also a great way for organizations, friends and families to get out for an evening of fun and fitness. Our hope is to change the narrative and stigma that often surrounds liver disease. 

Location:   St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre, 2500B 2nd Street W, Cornwall, ON

Event: From 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM
