Kids Fishing For a Cure 2018 @ Selkirk Park
Jun 2 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Kids Fishing For A Cure was founded in 1996 by local Selkirk resident John Harber. John was a volunteer driver for CancerCare Manitoba and on these trips he noticed the many children battling cancer. John, an avid fisherman, thought “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to take these children out fishing and make it a fun day for them”. John enlisted the help of local outfitters Wally Kostinuik, Bob Check and Jim Hyslop. Together, with the help of their families and friends, the first Kids Fishing for a Cure derby was held in the Selkirk Park. The derby was a huge success and it was their dream to make this an annual event. Unfortunately, John passed away in 2000. In 1999, a new executive was formed with the intent of carrying on to keep this dream alive. Various fundraisers are organized to raise money for the fishing derby, along with the help of sponsors and donations. We are very fortunate to have a great bunch of volunteers that work with the executive committee to put these events together. Derby day includes a pancake breakfast, boat operators taking participants out to fish on the Red River, followed by a lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers, drinks and treats. We have face painting and visits from various mascots. There is a raffle and silent auction, then the presentation of trophies, medallions and the presentation of a bicycle to the overall derby winner. The Kids Fishing For A Cure derby is a fun packed day where kids can just be kids. Patients and their families enjoy this special day. Our fishing derby is growing each year! Kids Fishing For A Cure is a non-profit organization, with net proceeds going to benefit Pediatric Cancer patients. To date, the Kids Fishing For A Cure o organization has donated over $150,000 in cash and gifts to Children’s Hospital pediatric oncology ward, the playroom at CancerCare Manitoba, as well as the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. We will continue our efforts to raise money for these children and welcome any new volunteers that wish to join us.

2018 Breast Cancer Pledge Ride @ Assiniboia Downs
Jun 3 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am
2018 Breast Cancer Pledge Ride @ Assiniboia Downs | Winnipeg | Manitoba | Canada
Each year riders come from all across Manitoba to show their support. By participating, or pledging a rider for the Breast Cancer Pledge Ride you will be part of the solution to kick cancer. Visit the Breast Cancer Pledge Ride web-site to see how your support has made a difference throughout the years. In 2001 an enthusiastic team of women and men came together at a kitchen table to create the Breast Cancer Pledge Ride. The goal of the ride is to make a difference in our community today by bringing Manitoba motorcyclists together to raise funds. “As we discussed the idea of raising money for breast cancer, we discovered that it had touched many of our lives. We heard many stories of grandmothers, mothers, sisters, wives and brothers. We realized breast cancer was closer than we thought. It is amazing how one small idea could blossom into an event that enables us to make such an impact on the health of our province. Our event attracts over 600 registrants annually and is growing. 100% of funds raised go directly to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and stay in our province.
