I am taking the Challenge - CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life – because I can!
By participating in this“Made-in-Manitoba” virtual event I am committed to taking steps to improve my overall health and reduce my own risk of cancer. I am also committed to raising at least $3500 to support CancerCare Manitoba and all those in need.
Join me in the Challenge – by registering yourself and choosing your workout, or by supporting me with a donation. We'll do it together.... because we can!
Every day in Manitoba, 19 people are diagnosed with cancer, and through the course of our lives, 1 in 2 of us will receive a cancer diagnosis. A number of my family members and friends have been affected by cancer, and so I am taking the challenge for them!
Challenge for Life is completely virtual so I am designing my own challenge. I will be cycling from my home in Headingley to Assiniboine Park, (12 km) and then running from the park to CancerCare Manitoba on McDermot, (10 km) for a total distance of 22 km.
CancerCare Manitoba is the provincially mandated cancer agency for all of Manitoba, responsible for cancer prevention, detection, treatment, research and education. CancerCare Manitoba is dedicated to excellence in cancer care, enhancing the quality of life of those diagnosed and living with cancer and blood disorders and improving cancer control for all Manitobans.
CancerCare Manitoba Foundation’s mission, in partnership with its donors, is to support CancerCare’s strategic priorities. Donor contributions help bridge the gap of initiatives and programs not eligible for government funding or where financial resources are not available. This support to CancerCare Manitoba profoundly impacts patient outcomes.
