Challenge for Life
Challenge for Life is a powerful annual event where hundreds of Manitobans come together to raise funds for a serious cause. Participants commit to raising $500 for CancerCare Manitoba while taking an active role in maintaining their physical health and reducing their personal cancer risks. Participants can “walk it” for 20 kilometers beginning and ending in Assiniboine Park or they can “work it” by taking part in 200 non-continuous minutes of aerobic workouts.
Since its inception in 2008, nearly $10 million has been raised. All proceeds stay in Manitoba to support prevention, early detection, state-of-the-art research, world-class treatment, and patient support at CancerCare Manitoba.
