Our inaugural Keira’s Winter Klassic held February 3rd, 2018 in honour of Keira Bond, was an unqualified success! Now, after three incredible tournaments, Keira’s Winter Klassic and our amazing supporters have raised over $83,000 towards pediatric brain cancer research!
Keira was just 10 years old when she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Despite the devastating diagnosis, within a few short months, Keira had decided she wanted to raise funds to help support others with cancer: Keira’s Krusade had begun (www.keiraskrusade.com). Having played ringette from the young age of five, Keira possessed incredible determination, resilience, and strength. These traits served her well during her illness.
Tragically, in June 2017, Keira was taken from us, six short months after her diagnosis. During times of extreme hardship, sport is often a mobilizing force – and our amazing ringette community did not disappoint. Many individuals within our community immediately wanted to reach out and help. Knowing Keira’s joy and passion for the game of ringette, a U12 ringette tournament was the perfect fit!
We are very excited as we prepare for our 4th annual Keira’s Winter Klassic. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our tournament will look a little different this year. We will be hosting the “Keira’s Winter Klassic 2021 Shooting Challenge” from February 5th to 16th, 2021. Contact Nancy Tovell at firstname.lastname@example.org to register, or for more information.
We look forward to once again partnering with our wonderful community to help support Manitoba children diagnosed with brain cancer. All proceeds from Keira’s Winter Klassic will go to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation via Keira’s Krusade to help fight pediatric brain cancer.
Thank you for your continued support. Let’s do this for Keira!

Thank you for helping to raise funds for Pediatric Cancer Research in Manitoba.
Like many Manitobans, our lives have been touched by a cancer diagnosis for someone we love. This summer our worlds were seriously rocked when our dear friend’s son was diagnosed with brain cancer. This seemingly rare disease suddenly became starkly real to us.
Childhood cancer is the most common disease related cause of death in Canadian children.
Childhood cancer is consistently underfunded, accounting for only 5% of all cancer research funding in Canada today.
Manitoba sees approximately 55 new children with cancer every year. The dedication of an entire team of health care and allied health care workers ensures that Manitoba children can stay in the province while receiving the most up-to-date and innovative therapies available.
On February 24th we will be walking 30,000 steps (indoors and out, weather depending!). Will you help us reach our goal of raising $600 for pediatric cancer research with CancerCare Manitoba by donating $30?
Through your generous donations we can make a difference!
Hosted by MESA and CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. All Proceeds from MESA’s Twitch Channel will go to supporting CCMF.
Date: February 26-28, 2021
