Lake Winnipeg Walk for Water

PARTICIPATE IN PERSON:

1. Download the Walk for Water 2018 pledge form here and print it. You can also pick up pledge forms throughout lakeside communities where they’ll be available at various businesses and organizations – or you can get them from LWF’s Winnipeg office. (Contact us here.)

2. Use the form to collect pledges for your walk; ask your friends, family, co-workers, teammates, or anyone else who cares about Lake Winnipeg and wants to be part of the solution! LWF provides charitable receipts for donations of $20 or more. Donations of $50 or more include a one-year LWF membership. Make sure you collect accurate and complete information from your pledgers to ensure that we can issue a receipt!

3. Bring your completed pledge form and the money you raised to one of our Walk for Water events. Remember to wear comfortable shoes and bring a reusable water bottle!

4. LWF volunteers will be on site to help you register before the walk begins. As a Walk for Water participant, you’ll receive a free LWF t-shirt – and the chance to win prizes!

PARTICIPATE ONLINE

1. Sign up: Click here to create a Walk for Water 2018 team, or join our online campaign as an individual. You’ll be led through a short series of easy steps to create your own page.
