The 2010 Challenge for Life
From now until June 12th, 2010, women and men of all ages will share a common goal of raising funds (a minimum of $1,000), awareness and, most importantly, taking an active role in their physical health and reducing their risk of cancer.
The 2010 Challenge Walk begins and ends at Assiniboine Park. The route takes us through some of Winnipeg's most beautiful neighborhoods.
I want to walk - how do I get started?
A Walker commits to setting two goals:
1. Raise $1,000 for CancerCare Manitoba
We're here every step of the way! The Challenge Team is here to help you with goalsetting, fundraising, or training for the Challenge. We provide all Challengers with donation forms, fundraising tips, website user guides, a discussion forum and their own personal webpage.
2. Reduce Your Risk!
Your Challenge Card provides you with a discount on healthy food and products, free offers of health classes and more discounts and special offers from our healthy living partners. Challenge Card Benefits

Register as an individual or create a team.
Teams can be made up of friends and family or you can join a corporate/business team. If you would like more information about our team program, please call 927-LIFE (5433).
What if I can’t walk that far?
If you are unable to continue walking while out on the route, one of our event vehicles will transport you to the next checkstop or take you where you can rest and receive medical attention if required. Your safety is always our first concern.
What if I'm unable to participate on Challenge Day?
If you are unable to participate on June 12th, your registration is non-refundable. Donations cannot be refunded, as they have already been tax-receipted.
Remember that your fundraising efforts will benefit all Manitobans. We hope your donors will appreciate supporting the Challenge for Life regardless of your participation.
