You are incredible Manitoba! THANK YOU!

You surpassed our wildest dreams! More than 1,100 of you participated in the #ChallengeforLife - a record number! Your months of training, sharing your stories, fundraising, and raising awareness about cancer has made all the difference for thousands of Manitobans impacted by a cancer diagnosis.

Thanks to each of you, together with more than 7,600 donors and sponsors, and over 300 volunteers, $1,601,471 been raised for CancerCare Manitoba. Another record number! Every dollar will stay in our province to make the cancer journey better for our families, friends and loved ones affected by this disease. And every one of these dollars will give more hope for better outcomes. Because of you.

The impact of Challenge for Life

In 2023, Challengers from nearly 70 communities in Manitoba laced up their running shoes and raised an incredible $1,165,516 to support the work of CancerCare Manitoba. Since 2008, Challengers have raised more than $16.6 million to change lives!

All proceeds support prevention, early detection, state-of-the-art research, world-class treatment and vital patient programs and services at CancerCare Manitoba - resulting in better patient outcomes.



“I’ve had the privilege of being an oncology nurse for 26 years. I can say first-hand I can see the difference - that money raised, research, and support - has actually changed the cancer journey for so many patients and families.” - Jodi Hyman, CancerCare Manitoba
