We are using the go fund me platform to motivate 2 teams of sailors onboard to run the distance from Esquimalt BC to Winnipeg MB and back, in the time of our deployment. In addition to the money that we will raise onboard from our ship’s crew, we will be using this platform to encourage friends, family, and supporters of the ship and crew to donate to this initiative as well.This race will be a 4800 km virtual relay race! Roughly 63,158 laps on the ship's flight deck! The teams will be allocated closer to when we start our operation and updates on how far they have gone will be posted!
You can donate on this page to support your sailors, and you can follow their progress and cheer them on as they virtually trek across Western Canada for a great cause. You can follow along on Twitter (@HMCSWinnipeg), Facebook (@HMCSNCSMWinnipeg), and Instagram (@hmcs_winnipeg)!
