12th Annual Kendra’s Walk KWaranTeens Against Cancer @ St. John's Ravencourt School
May 22 @ 2:00 pm

EVENT UPDATE:

While the Kendra’s Walk committee is saddened to announce that the regular community walk will not be occurring this year due to COVID-19, we are pleased to inform you that we will be moving our annual walk to an online platform. Roughly a week before the walk the Kendra’s Krew will release a video explaining our initiatives for this year. We are introducing a hashtags challenge.

Supporters of Kendra’s Walk will be encouraged to post throwbacks from past walks, photos of their merchandise or simply them wearing purple with the first round of hashtags to nominate friends, family, or other community members to participate. These will be posted on Instagram stories, where participants are encouraged to tag @kendraswalk, and say, “I nominate __ to walk wearing purple on May 22nd #48hoursForKendra”. We recommend that participants nominate 5 – 10 people.

May 22nd at 2 pm we are encouraging participants to take a small amount of time out of their day to go on a walk with their family, and post about it. The second hashtag (#KWaranTEENSagainstcancer) shows that they completed the challenge and inspires/reminds others to complete the challenge as well. The goal of the hashtags are to create a sense of community while simultaneously increasing awareness and participation. Whoever participates is encouraged to tag the Kendra’s Walk Instagram on their stories. Everyone is encouraged to deck themselves out in purple!

This effort will be advertised by Ace Burpee in order to reach more people and help attract interest! Further information and more details will be announced closer to the date of the walk.

Our online store, selling Kendra’s Walk merchandise is open until April 29, 2020. Please consider ordering merchandise to wear for when you participate in our Hashtag Challenge!

A walk raising money and awareness for teens living with cancer:

  • organized by youths, for youths, in support of the Cancer Care Manitoba Foundation
  • there is no entry fee for participants – instead, they contribute by raising money to support the Foundation
  • 100% of all money collected goes directly to support the Foundation.
The participants’ efforts have shown that young people welcome the chance to participate with the entire community in charitable causes, and it allows members of the community, whom participants approach for donations, to take part as well. This group is the future of volunteerism, and with your help, they will be encouraged to do their part and more. Please browse the website to find out more about the walk and about how you can become an integral part of this youth initiative, helping to build the leaders of tomorrow while supporting research which yields cures and treatments for people worldwide.
