Recently I photographed the “1st ANNUAL MUSIC FOR THE GUT” concert in Winnipeg for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. Besides being afflicted with this disease, I also volunteer my time to the cause by creating images that help raise awareness and funding that goes towards research and treatment.
MUSIC FOR THE GUT is a Musical Variety Show that started under the creative coordination of the Hughton Family in Saskatoon. This event has been raising funds for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada since 2011. The Winnipeg Chapter of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada held the 1ST ANNUAL MUSIC FOR THE GUT WINNIPEG on Thursday, May 4 at The Park Theatre.
Jay Semko of The Northern Pikes helped to raise awareness and funds for Crohn’s and Colitis Canada. The concert included performances from local artists such as The Piano Kings, Kenzie Jane, Two Hip and more!
All proceeds went to Crohn’s and colitis research. The goal is to bring medical breakthroughs and better treatments for those effected, as well as improving the lives of children and adults dealing with these chronic diseases.
