The St.Amant and DASCH Foundations have partnered to bring the Wild Winter Canoe Race presented by VIA Rail Canada to Shaw Park on February 16, 2019.

Racing in a canoe on snow?   Yes!  Your favourite crew of five, one canoe, no paddles, a snow-packed 450-foot course, timed head-to-head heats, adrenaline-rushing, heart-pumping excitement, contests, cheering fans and amazing prizes!  The Wild Winter Canoe Race is the most fun you and your team will have all year.

Why? Funds from the race will go towards the ‘Sharing Together-Partager Ensemble Fund,’ a collaboration between the St.Amant and DASCH Foundations that will:

  • Support social and recreational activities where people of various interests, skills and abilities, with and without disabilities, can connect, have fun and get to know one another;
  • Ease loneliness and reduce social isolation for children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism living in neighbourhood homes throughout Winnipeg;
  • Ensure that a disability is not an obstacle to being appreciated and included.
