Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women - Winnipeg 2024

Walking for Louise

Just over 2 years ago, Louise lost her struggle with mental health and we lost a sister, daughter, mother, wife, friend. Louise is always in our hearts and our thoughts and we miss her so very much. 

This year, we're excited to be joining thousands of walkers and runners across Canada in the Shoppers Drug Mart® Run for Women, raising funds for women’s mental health programs at Canadian Mental Health Association Manitoba and Winnipeg

We have created a team in Louise’s name, “Walking for Louise”. It would be so great if you could be part of the team and participate by walking/jogging (either 5km or 10km) on Saturday, June 8th.  

To join Louise’s team, register as a team member/participant at under the team “Walking for Louise”.  As a participant, there is a $60 registration fee as long as you register at least 5 days before the event date.  If you register on the day of the event, the cost is $75.  Each participant will receive a Run for Women T-shirt, a swag bag from Shoppers Drug Mart and a Run for Women Finisher Bracelet. 

The race kit can be picked up at Kenaston Running Room at 1875 Grant Avenue on the following dates and times: Wed. June 5 from 12pm to 5pm, Thurs. June 6 from 12pm to 6pm; and Fri. June 7 from 12pm to 6pm. 

The race location is Manitoba Legislative Building at 450 Broadway. Welcome and warm-up is at 8:12am so you’d need to arrive before that to register or sign in.  The 5km walk/run starts at 8:45am.  If anyone is wanting to do the 10km, it starts at 8:30am. The Run for Women Shoppers Drug Mart website has more information on parking, etc. 

We have a set up a team goal of $2500 to raise money for women’s mental health. Whether you decide to join the team or not, please consider donating to help us reach our fundraising goal. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to women’s mental health programs in our community. 

I’m looking forward to participating in this special event in honour of Louise.  If you have any questions, let me know. 

Thanks team!
