Support a healthy Lake Winnipeg with your favourite summer activity!

A graphic with different suggestions of activities for how you can support a healthy Lake Winnipeg with your favourite summer activity

UPDATE: Our summer campaign has been extended until Sept. 30, 2020. Thanks for your support!

For years, LWF’s Walk for Water events have connected communities and generated vital funds to protect Lake Winnipeg. This year, your support is as important as ever.

To ensure the safety of everyone involved, we are adapting our summer 2020 season. LWF will not be hosting in-person events. Instead, we’re encouraging you to support a healthy Lake Winnipeg with your favourite summer activity!

  • Get creative to show your appreciation for our great lake
  • Organize a personalized fundraiser
  • Take part in online activities we’ll be hosting all summer long
  • Donate to the campaign


Use your skills, talents or hobbies to support healthy water: take on a fitness challenge, sell your homemade pickles, decorate your sidewalk with chalk, collect donations to clean up in your community or “sell tickets” to a virtual show where you play guitar around the campfire. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination!

Need help with ideas? Check out our event ideas page to get inspired.

This summer, we'd love for you to consider collecting donations to help us translate science into solutions and protect Lake Winnipeg. We'd also love to see how you show your love for your lake. Whether you raise money, raise awareness, or simply share your favourite part about Lake Winnipeg, we want to hear about it!


Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.org!

Have a great idea to promote? Need assistance setting up your online campaign? Contact us at info@lakewinnipegfoundation.org – we’re happy to help!


Our summer campaign runs until Sept. 30, 2020. All the money raised from your activity will be used to translate science into solutions …for Lake Winnipeg!

With your support, we are addressing the root causes of harmful algae blooms: funding important research projects; training citizen scientists to collect water samples; advocating governments for evidence-based policy; and educating students and community groups.


Don’t forget to tell your friends about your achievement, use the #forlakewinnipeg hashtag and tag us in your social media posts — we want to see what you’re doing this summer on, in and around the lake!
