A race. In a canoe. In WINTER. Limited space – only 60 teams. 5-person teams race canoes over a snow-packed course. Bell Media hosts. Assiniboia Downs race caller. Prizes that will blow your mind! Think 5 VIA Rail return passes for 2 to Churchill. FREE admission for fans. It’s a blast!
We supply canoes. No paddles here!
You and your crew “foot-paddle” the canoe to the finish. Head to head heats with the 3 fastest teams winning the grand prizes…and bragging rights!
Proceeds from the race will support the Sharing Together Fund, a collaboration between the DASCH & St.Amant Foundations that will harness the power of recreation to connect children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism with their neighbours. Activities such as street movie nights and neighbourhood BBQs will spark some fun and grow bonds to ease loneliness and social isolation. St.Amant and DASCH have over 150 community homes throughout Winnipeg.
