Garbutt Walk for PF – Winnipeg
September 1 – 12:00 am – September 30 – 11:59 pm EDT
Rob was diagnosed in 2011 with IPF after having a bad flu and a cough that wouldn’t go away. Since being diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) his life has changed in many ways.
Watch Rob’s story and learn more about his journey with pulmonary fibrosis.
Rob plans on walking daily starting Sept 1 – Sept 30, 2022 and posting photos of himself, his dog Maggie, and his wife Beth while they are on their walks.
Rob and Beth invite you to join them in person on their daily walks during the month of September. Due to the uncertainty of Rob’s health situation, he will message registered participants on walk times and locations the day before through this platform. The September daily walks will take place in Winnipeg, most likely in Rob and Beth’s neighbourhood and local parks. They hope to also spice it up a little and go to the off-leash dog park with Maggie.
Help Rob and Beth raise awareness for pulmonary fibrosis throughout the whole month of September by virtually walking in your own neighbourhood and beyond on your own time.
