WALK IT Questions

Anyone can take the Challenge - men, women, boys and girls of all ages. Unless they are part of the KIDS COUNT team, children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult who is a registered participant in the Challenge.

Teams can be made up of friends and family or you can join a corporate/business team. If you would like more information about our team program, please call 204-927-LIFE (5433).

If you are unable to continue walking while on the route or can’t finish the workout, one of our event vehicles will transport you to the next checkstop or take you where you can rest and receive medical attention if required. Your safety is always our first concern.

If you are unable to participate, your registration is non-refundable. Donations cannot be refunded, as they have already been credited for a tax-receipt.

Remember that your fundraising efforts will benefit all Manitobans. We hope your donors will appreciate supporting the Challenge for Life regardless of your participation.

Each participant commits to:

1. Raising $500 for CancerCare Manitoba.

We are raising serious dollars for a serious cause. The Challenge Team is here to help with goal setting, fundraising and training tips to help you succeed.

2. Reduce Your Risk!

Participants pledge to reduce their risk by eating healthy, getting regular exercise, quitting smoking, going for regular check-ups, and practicing safe sun.

Register online or call 204-927-LIFE (5433). The registration fee is $25. During the registration process, you can choose to join as an individual, create a team, or join an existing team.
