This past January Mayor Brian Bowman announced Winnipeg joined Harbin (China), Sapporo (Japan), Ulan Bator (Mongolia) and twenty-one other cities as accredited members of the World Winter Cities Associations for Mayors. We are Winter…officially. Furthermore, Winnipeg boasts the Guinness World Record for the longest naturally frozen skating trail. The current World Record for the Longest Line of Ice Skaters is held by a chain of 370 skaters in Hachinohe, Aomori, Japan. This record can easily be broken on the Red River Mutual Trail with YOUR help. February 4th is World Cancer Day and this coming year our committee will organize the first ever ‘Chain for Change’, a fundraiser for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. This fundraiser will also attempt to break the World Record for the Longest Line of Ice Skaters. World Cancer Day, February 4 2018, embraces the tagline “We Can. I Can.” and explores how everyone- as a collective or as an individual- can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer. Just as cancer affects everyone in different ways, each person has the power to take action to reduce cancer’s impact and it is time for Winnipeg to act in a big way.

We would love nothing more than to bring our passionate and caring community together through a patriotic activity for a worthy cause.

Let’s take action, Winnipeg. We Can. I Can.

Please join us at The Forks on February 4, 2018 and be part of the

“Chain for Change”

in support of CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the quest for a cure.
