Event Details

The Challenge for Life is a unique event designed to improve public health and raise money and awareness for all cancers which affect the people of Manitoba. Making progress against cancer requires significant collective effort and the involvement of Manitobans across our province. We are inviting you to join us in the Challenge for Life! People of all ages and abilities can enjoy taking the Challenge. Register as an individual or form a team with friends, family, or colleagues!

Your challenge can be done at one time or you can break it up over 12 days, August 5-17, 2021. Get as creative as you want with your challenge…at home, in your neighbourhood, or a at park! Just make sure you complete your challenge safely and follow physical distancing guidelines wherever you are.

You can do any challenge you like to reach either 20km or 200 minutes of exercise! Walk, cycle, swim, run or do a workout from aerobics to zumba and everything in between. There are no limits! Take advantage of different fitness tracking apps to share your challenge with others.

Stuck on what to do? Check out our Challenge ideas page for some inspiration!

Strive to pass the $250 minimum fundraising requirement! Challenge your family, friends and colleagues to maximize your fundraising. You will make such a tremendous difference for our province’s cancer patients.

We may not be coming together to celebrate the Challenge in person this year, but that doesn’t mean you’re alone. People from all across Manitoba will be participating with you at heart.

Join us and your fellow Challengers online for a closing ceremony on August 17. More details on this are to come.

Challenge yourself - lace up your running shoes, fill up your water bottle and join fellow Manitobans in the challenge of your life. Continue living a healthy lifestyle and reducing your personal risk of cancer, while fundraising on behalf of all Manitobans.
