On October 19th, several Winnipeg Cancer Coaches took to a local shopping mall to spread the word about Canada’s second most deadly cancer. Winnipegers may recognize Sid Chapnick and Dave Nash from the Kick Butt for Colorectal Cancer event, the yearly family fun run in September- but their awareness initiatives go year-round!

The M.A.T.H. (Mall Activity That’s Healthy) event strove to bring together seniors and elders for Walktober, National Walking Month. Various health and wellness groups from the Winnipeg community were on hand to dispense vital information and make connections within the community. We hope to see more events like this popping up across Canada!
