I am taking the Challenge - CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life – because I can!
My name is JoAnn and this is my second year participating in Challenge for Life. I lost my mom to TNBC in December of 2019 which lead me to search for ways to honor her memory. Through research I was lead to Challenge for Life.
What I love about the Challenge for Life is that anyone can do it! You can customize your challenge however you like. Walk 20 km between August 5-17th or run it all in one shot. Get you friends together (Covid restrictions permitting) and participate in a slow pitch tournament or set up a friendly social distanced competition. The sky is the limit!
Did you know 1 in 2 Manitobans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime? 19 Manitobans are diagnosed with cancer everyday!! Challenge for Life proceeds stay right here in Manitoba to support prevention, early detection, state-of-the-art research, world-class treatment and vital patient programs and services at CancerCare Manitoba.
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.
