Summer looks a little different for everyone this year. To keep each other safe, our annual Walk for Water events won’t be happening. We’re going to miss seeing everyone, but we’ve got some exciting new initiatives taking place!
Here’s a look at what’s happening – and how you can get involved from the comfort of your own home:
Support a healthy Lake Winnipeg with your favourite summer activity! Love to bake? Passionate about running? Keen to clean up your community? All this and more can be turned into a fundraiser …for Lake Winnipeg!
Turn your special talents and unique skills into freshwater solutions. Get inspired with these ideas – then get involved! Whatever activity floats your boat, remember to observe your regional public health guidlines for travelling, physical distancing, sanitizing, and small group activities.
If you've picked a fundraising idea, and want us to help promote it, tell us about it and we can add it to our events calendar!
