TEENS HELPING TEENS
Kendra’s Walk is an annual event that was created in 2009 by Kendra McBain. Kendra’s mission was to raise awareness and support other teens with cancer. Even after her passing in 2009, her legacy is continued through Kendra’s Walk and other fundraising initiatives. Kendra’s Walk is organized by teens, for teens. To date, Kendra’s Walk has raised over $1 million, with all proceeds going to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.

"Cancer, however scary it may be, is nothing to be ashamed of, and the only way to get through it is with a smile on your face to keep fighting."
