How A Beard Can Help A Kid With Crohn’s or Colitis

Nuckfest 3 Saturday in Barrie

It happens Saturday night in Barrie…Nuckfest 3…the Ontario Beard and Moustache Championships to raise money for Camp Got2Go – a youth program for kids with Crohn’s and Colitis. These are diseases that cause inflammation in all or part of the gastrointestinal tract leading to frequent and sometimes urgent trips to the bathroom…

Nuckfest organizer Mike Speyer says Camp Got2Go allows kids to meet others with similar challenges..to share understanding and create friendships. Nuckfest will feature beards from all over North America…and axe throwing competition and tribute bands. Click here for more information.
