Update: A huge thank you to everyone who joined us at this year's walks. Together, we've raised almost $40,000 - and counting! - to support solutions for Lake Winnipeg! (Head to our Facebook page to see photos from our Dunnottar and Victoria Beach & District walks!) Missed this summer's events but still want to help?

Lake Winnipeg Walk for Water

PARTICIPATE IN PERSON:

1. Download the Walk for Water 2019 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. Please ensure collected information is accurate and complete so that we can mail charitable receipts in a timely manner!

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 before the walk begins to receive your donations and give you a free LWF t-shirt. We’ll also have free educational material to browse/pick up, and fundraising products for purchase. Both Walk for Water events also feature fundraising raffles with great prizes to win!

5. Raffle winners at both events will be announced after the walk. In Dunnottar, we host a community barbeque.

PARTICIPATE ONLINE

1. Sign up: Click here to create a Walk for Water 2019 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.
