WINNIPEG — A wintry race at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers is calling out volunteers to assist.
The Wild Winter Canoe Race on February 19 is a friendly competition on groomed snow tracks where teams of five race with one leg in and one leg out of a canoe.
The event is an addition to the Festival du Voyageur‘s festivities at The Forks next month.
Money raised will support Inclusion Winnipeg’s Emergency Card Project for the design of a critical communication tool for people who have challenges interacting when in distress.
