2017 Race Director Message
September 6, 2016
I would like to welcome you back for the 13th Annual WPS Half Marathon. We look forward to once again providing you the chance to create some great memories and enjoy Winnipeg's outdoors!
Over the years our team of volunteers has been dedicated to providing a great running event but to also raise awareness and funds on behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society. We were sadly reminded this August of the realities a Cancer diagnosis can bring with the loss of a WPS Half Marathon legend, Joanne Scheiwe.
Jo was diagnosed with Stage 4 Brain Cancer in Spring of 2015; with her limited time she dedicated herself to making a difference by raising awareness for the cause that would ultimately take her from us.
Keeping her positive spirit alive we will work to change the course for others and grow on her strength and leadership.
Join us in keeping her legacy alive as we meet again, on May 7, 2017 to run, walk, laugh, cry but finish the WPS Half Marathon.
See you there.
