A Viking’s Challenge 2023 Recap

A Viking’s Challenge 4th Edition was March 4 & 5 and we couldn’t be happier with how the event unfolded.

In total, 36 people participated, running a combined total of 737 km, or the equivalent of 24.5 crossings of Lake Winnipeg. For the first time since the pandemic, Chris was able to be back on the lake with his friend Shawn in Gimli, MB this year, despite the ongoing treatments and side-effects that come with fighting a dangerous cancer.

We thank everyone who contributed to A Viking’s Challenge 2023. Your actions have made a powerful statement of support for Chris and fellow melanoma patients across CanadaTogether, we raised nearly $9,000 this year. Since its inception in 2020, the event has raised $50,000 to help assist patients reach the life- treatment they need.
