The Wild Winter Canoe Race will raise money to benefit the  Sharing Together – Partager Ensemble Fund , a collaboration between the DASCH + St.Amant Foundations that will:

  • support social and recreational activities for people with various interest, skills and abilities
  • connect children, youth and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism with people in their neighborhoods to have some fun and get to know one another.
  • grow bonds to ease loneliness and social isolation in neighborhoods throughout Winnipeg

We hope that you lend your support by entering a team in the race.  See you at the START line!
