Ostomy Awareness Day: October 1, 2022

Ostomy Awareness Day is celebrated in Canada on October 1, 2022. In conjunction with Ostomy Awareness Day, Ostomy Canada will celebrate a national awareness and fund raising event called Step Up for Ostomy. This will be a Canada wide event to raise awareness about ostomy and collect donations. This goes towards ostomates and their families to help them live life to the fullest through support education, collaboration and advocacy.

On October 1, 2022, people living with an ostomy invite their friends and family to walk, run, roll, slide, hop, dance, sashay, prance, bike, jump, chill, play cards, or whatever to raise funds and awareness for Ostomy Canada. In 2021, Ostomy Canada was able to raise $82,000+ of their goal of $50,000!

MyOstomy is a proud Gold Sponsor of the event! We encourage you to help in anyway that you can, whether that be by raising ostomy awareness, donating to #StepUpForOstomy or simply by sharing your experience with us on social media!
