Canadian Burn Survivors Conference 2016
The Mamingwey Burn Survivor Society was pleased to host the Canadian Burn Survivors Conference, which was held from June 15 to 18, 2016, at the Delta hotel in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba. Our theme was “Building a Supportive Community”.
GO FOR THE BURN FUN RUN
Along with our annual conference held in Winnipeg each year, we held the second annual Go for the Burn Run on April 23, 2016 to promote fitness and as a fundraiser. Proceeds of the run will support the work of the Mamingwey Burn Survivor Society. This includes financial support for our conferences as well as attendance at the Canadian Burn Survivor Conferences and the World Burn Congresses and much more.
This event featured a 10K timed run, a 5K timed run, a 3K youth run and a 3K walk.
