In light of the situation with COVID-19, Manitoba’s 6th Annual Walk for Scleroderma format has changed.
Scleroderma Manitoba will be following the government’s guidelines and will not be holding the walk at St Vital Park, as it has been for the previous 5 years. Since it is still very important to raise awareness & funds, we have come up with an alternative.
Please register as you normally would ($0 registration fee) for this year’s virtual event and commit to walking, running or riding a bike for a total of 1K or 5K from June 1st to World Scleroderma Day on June 29th.
Commit to the distance & keep your own tally throughout the month. It is not necessary to complete the entire distance all at one time. This way you can walk at your own pace in a safe setting, all while practicing social distancing.
Once you are registered, please promote yourself on your social media to ask for donations or people to join you, as you have done in the past.
If you have one, please wear your t-shirt from any of the previous years while out walking, to raise awareness.
The fun continues afterwards when everyone shares how they participated, so make sure to take pictures or videos and send them to us via email to email@example.com. Include your location and any other details you would like to provide. Also, please tag our Facebook page.
