Save The Date For Our 2020 Event
Dear Friends of Operation Walk
The Operation Walk Manitoba Board has had to make the decision to postpone our annual fundraising event in May 2020. The current COVID 19 pandemic has necessitated this to ensure the safety of all our supporters and team members.
The fundraising event has now been rescheduled for Wednesday, September 16, 2020, at the Gates on Roblin. Please click here for ticket information.
We are hopeful that the team will still be able to travel to Nicaragua in November as planned, however, the decision whether to proceed or to delay the mission will depend on the status of the epidemic in Nicaragua. We are in constant communication with the hospital and local doctors in this regard.
Operation Walk board members and the Event Chair, Elly Hoogterp, wish to thank you all for your support through these very trying times. The need to provide joint replacement surgery to patients suffering from debilitating joint disease never diminishes. The stress that the current pandemic is placing on health care systems around the world is felt even harder in countries with limited resources like Nicaragua.
We are hopeful that you will continue to support our organization and the service that it provides to these grateful patients.
We hope to see as many of you as possible at the fundraiser in September. We have a great evening planned and would love to see you there.

Operation Walk Manitoba
Operation Walk is a not-for-profit, volunteer medical service organization whose purpose is to provide surgical treatments to patients who live in developing countries that have little or no access to debilitating bone & joint disease care.
Make a difference today!
Every donation makes a difference. Your gift enables Operation Walk’s team of healthcare professionals to return people with disabling joint disease to a more normal lifestyle. Patients are often confined to a wheelchair, crutches or dependent on someone else just to walk a short distance. The gift of a new hip or knee joint from the Operation Walk team can make a significant difference. Your donation will continue to help us achieve our mission.
