Keira’s Winter Klassic @ Keith Bodley Arena
Feb 4 – Feb 6 all-day

Our inaugural Keira’s Winter Klassic held February 3rd, 2018 in honour of Keira Bond, was an unqualified success! Now, after four incredible tournaments (including last year’s virtual competition), Keira’s Winter Klassic and our amazing supporters have raised over $100,000 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 5th annual Keira’s Winter Klassic. We will be hosting Keira’s Winter Klassic 2022 at Keith Bodley Arena from February 4th to 6th, 2022. We are very pleased to share that we are also offering a chance to join our tournament virtually as an honourary team supporter – come help us create more awareness about pediatric brain cancer, and show your support for children like Keira! Please contact Nancy Tovell at ntovell@mymts.net to register for our tournament – in-person or virtually – 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!

Techapalooza @ Club Regent Event Centre
Mar 12 @ 6:00 pm

What is Techapalooza?

This concert event brings together 5 to 7 bands comprised of talented musicians who work in the I.T. sector. Bands perform for an enthusiastic crowd that votes for their favourite band to be crowned “Fan Favourite.” …all while rockin’ the night away to raise money for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation (CCMF).

When did this all start?

When Techapalooza was first held in 2012, we had a sell-out crowd of over 300 and raised $25,000 for CCMF. Due to the global pandemic, Techapalooza 2021, was held online in a March Madness style bracket tournament! Bands had their favourite 2020 tracks pitted against each other, and winners (determined through ‘Groupie’ donations) moved to the next round.. We enjoyed 6 weeks of band battles, and we raised $54,000 for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. Now that we have a roarin’ return to live entertainment, we are targeting to raise $110,000 to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.

When and where is this event being held?
