We are extremely fortunate to have access to world-class healthcare within our small province of Manitoba. This is something you truly do not appreciate until having lived your own experience with CancerCare Manitoba.
CancerCare Manitoba works tirelessly to not only care for those living with cancer, but also further research leading to an ultimate goal of finding a cure.
Living with cancer makes you appreciate the little things in life and see what truly matters. We have full hearts, clear eyes, and a passion for life everyday – what more can you ask for in this life?
What started as a fund in lieu of gifts for our recent wedding has snowballed into something much larger. Over the past two years, because of the generosity of our family, friends, business colleagues and the loving community in which we live over $50,000 was donated to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. We are very grateful for the opportunity to continue to assist the Foundation to fundraise for the countless activities they support.
We hold various events throughout the year such as golf tournaments, holiday dinners, public appeals and speaking engagements, among others. All funds raised through these events are donated to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
We continue to live for today, hope for tomorrow, and dream of forever – a forever that no longer includes in-curable cancer.
Thank you in advance for your donation. You are changing lives, including ours.

Our inaugural Keira’s Winter Klassic held February 3rd, 2018 in honour of Keira Bond, was an unqualified success! The amazing ringette community, and our greater Manitoba community, outdid themselves in support of this first-time event. Together we raised over $37,000 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 very often a mobilizing force – and our 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 3rd annual Keira’s Winter Klassic. We look forward to once again partnering with our wonderful community to help support Manitoba children diagnosed with a brain tumour. 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 support. Let’s do this for Keira!
