For years, LWF’s Walk for Water events have connected communities and generated vital funds to protect Lake Winnipeg. This year, our summer event season will look a little bit different.

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
