Due to the warm winter conditions, The Wild Winter Canoe Race in support of Inclusion Winnipeg was canceled.
Track conditions were poor because of the melting snow and ice, and alternate venues to hold the race could not be secured. This resulted in our team composed of Andrew Ricard, Troy Wilson, Sebby Bel, Cole Sneesby and Bryce Villanueva being unable to compete.
Despite this, our team and the Winnipeg Rifles community were still able to raise $1400.00 for Inclusion Winnipeg!!! We came in as one of the top fundraisers- we should be very proud of this accomplishment.
Thank you very much for your generous support of this very worthy charity. We are looking to compete next year if weather permits!
Thanks again to everyone.
On Dec 10th Winnipeg Rifle players, coaching staff and board members volunteered to assist SAMs Christmas - part of the charity organization Project Echo. SAMs Chrismas gives more than 150 hampers to families in Winnipeg who would have a very different holiday season without their help. Winnipeg Rifles members helped take hampers assembled at Sturgeon Heights School to a warehouse where they will be organized for upcoming delivery. Our team did an amazing job! What was supposed to be a three hour job was done in two hours. Way to go team! Thank you to everyone who helped and for making Christmas a happy time for some of our less fortunate families.
Merry Christmas to all on behalf of the Winnipeg Rifles!
