The 5th Annual Turning Leaf Games
On July 5, 2017, Turning Leaf hosted the 5th annual Turning Leaf Games, where multiple agencies brought more than 150 participants—people who experience mental illness, intellectual challenge or other disabilities—to the University of Manitoba Stadium for a chance to showcase their athletic talent.
The day was a huge success for everyone involved, participants, staff and volunteers alike. We had events ranging from the 100-metre to the 400-metre to shot put to soccer and even the long jump.
We’d like to take this opportunity to give a huge shout to so many supporters that helped make this day such an unforgettable one:
Mountain View Auto & Truck Parts
Assiniboine park zoo
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Watermart Water Centres
World of Water
G&L Sales Ltd.
If you weren’t in attendance, you might of caught us on the radio, as 94.3 The Drive on-location host Kelly Parker did a great job telling Winnipeggers who Turning Leaf was and why our event was so special. So, we’d like to thank him and his team.
And, of course, we’d like to thank our wonderful staff and all the volunteers.
Without them, none of this would have been possible.
Can’t wait till next year!
