"What we do for ourselves dies with us.
What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal."

At age 17, Kendra McBain was being treated in the children's area of CancerCare Manitoba. She had an incredible rapport with the younger kids and they always seemed to manage a smile when Kendra was around. But as a young adult, enduring constant pain and wrestling with so many different emotions, Kendra often felt the need for a space that was tailored to the teen cancer experience and away from the mild chaos that often accompanied the younger kids. Where so many visions begin and end with a thought of "Wouldn’t it be nice...". Kendra was just getting started.

On May 29, 2009, Kendra's Walk came alive and the idea that started as a small and simple event to raise enough money to buy a TV and a few movies became anything but. Over 1,000 people lined the grounds of the schoolyard that day, and, when all was said and done, the event raised more than $160,000. An entire community stood behind one young woman in her battle against cancer.

The TV turned into an entire room designed specifically for teens with cancer. To date, driven by Kendra’s vision, more than $600,000 has been raised for CancerCare Manitoba's Teens Living with Cancer (TLC) support program, as well as further research into rhabdomyosarcoma.

Please help keep Kendra's dream alive and make a difference today!
