Wild Winter Canoe Race 2019

Wild Winter Canoe Race 2019

With just a few hours of your time - you can help us make a difference for people living with intellectual disabilities! 

We hope you can join the fun on February 16th, 2019 at our new location, Shaw Park! 

The Wild Winter Canoe Race is a friendly competition held on a course of groomed snow tracks. There will be 60 teams of 5 people each dressed in bright colours and racing with one leg in and one leg out of a canoe.  No paddles!

The Wild Winter Canoe Race will raise money to benefit the Sharing Together – Partager Ensemble Fund, a collaboration between the DASCH + St.Amant Foundations that will:

  • support social and recreational activities for people with various interest, skills and abilities

  • connect children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism with people in their neighborhoods to have some fun and get to know one another.

  • grow bonds to ease loneliness and social isolation in neighborhoods throughout Winnipeg

We can’t wait to see you at Shaw Park!
