Thank you for another successful summer
From all of us at LWF, thank you to everyone who took part in our 2021 summer event season, whether in person or online! While continuing to navigate ongoing public health challenges, we were excited for the opportunity to once again connect with citizens who share our love and concern for Lake Winnipeg.
Bike to the Beach returned for a second year, surpassing all expectations and raising more than $118,000 for Lake Winnipeg! Thank you to the 53 cyclists who took on this challenge with gusto, to the many volunteers and community partners who helped with logistics, to our 2021 corporate sponsors Canada Life, Montrose Winnipeg, Pollard Family Foundation, Quadrant Private Wealth and Price Industries for their leadership – and to everyone who donated in support of this initiative.
Community spirit continued for Walk for Water, which saw 130 people join together in Victoria Beach for an adapted event. The passion of our supporters makes our work possible, and it is always so inspiring to see lake-lovers unite in common purpose. Thank you to the amazing and dedicated volunteer organizing committee for all your efforts, to our 2021 sponsors Johnston Group, Quintex Services and Desjardins Financial Security Investments - Kilcona for their corporate commitment, and to the walkers and donors whose collective efforts raised more than $27,000 for a healthy Lake Winnipeg!
