Walk With Us 2019 Report

Posted in: MDSS Announcements, MDSS Walk With Us

Thank you to everyone who participated in this years annual MDSS Walk With Us fundraiser at CMU Sept 29,2019.
Although it was another rainy day, we still had over 600 walkers! A huge thank you to our MANY volunteers – family and friends – we couldn’t do this without you! Special thanks to Paula and her group of RBC volunteers – thank you so much for donating your time! Also thank you to Chloe and Jeremy Williamson for taking pictures and video

Congratulations to our winners:
MOST RAISED – Team Evynne’s Entourage – $6065
MOST WALKERS – Team Emalyn – 55
(honorable mention to Team Reya Sunshine with 50 walkers)

Despite the rain a lot of fun was had by all. We had Elsa and Spiderman, Blue Bombers mascots and cheer leaders, face paint-ing, a photo booth, and special thanks to the Winnipeg Police Service Community Support unit who brought ARV. Everyone had a blast dancing to the 2 Man Band and Jake Chenier! There was pizza/chips/cookies both regular and gluten free. Thank you to the Fontaine family for cutting the ribbon and leading the way for our walk 🙂

This year, through your efforts, we were able to raise over $60,000.00 for MDSS. I would personally like to thank the MDSS board and the Walk With Us Committee for helping me navigate my first year as the coordinator. Your dedication to the organization is what makes this event a huge success. Thank you to everyone who participated. See you next year!
