Date: Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00 pm
Location: Indigenous Family Centre, 470 Selkirk Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba
This meeting is open to everyone! Please come and find out how you can get involved.1. We need a motorhome! 
Over half of the walk is through hundreds of kms without any options for accommodation. We need to rent or borrow a motorhome so the walkers have a place to stay! This is one of our biggest costs!

2. We need walkers, support crew, and community hosts
Walkers: We are looking for people who are willing to walk with the water, for 1 day, for 2 days, for the whole walk, any time commitment at all.
Support Crew: We need drivers, cooks, safety and logistical support to care for our walkers by traveling to assist with food preparation, camp set ups, laundry etc.
Community Hosts: We need contacts in each community to support our walkers through meals, community feasts, home stays.
Check out the route information for dates and location of the walk.
Extra need for walkers from July 12 – 26.

3. We need donations!
Our largest expense (aside from the motorhome) is fuel! Sponsorship information can be found on our website and we have a bank account set up so people can write cheques to “Lake Winnipeg Water Walk”. People can also donate online at
Please share our website through email and Facebook!
Please send any potential sponsorship names to Michelle at 204-223-0510.
