Running, walking, rollerblading, cycling, even horseback riding is allowed at the third annual Tammi Kroeker Memorial: Run, Walk or Ride.
"Last year we actually had a person on a horse doing the distance," event organizer Brent Dyck said.
This year’s event is scheduled for Sun., Sept. 14 beginning at 9 a.m. in Fannystelle. Participants will travel approximately 20 kilometres, or 13.1 miles — a half marathon distance — north on Highway 248 to Elie where a potluck lunch at the Elie Community Club starts at noon.
Dyck is friends with Kroeker’s family. The young mother of three and Fannystelle resident died of breast cancer in 2012.
"We’re trying to keep it as loose as possible," Dyck said.
Participants can end their run or walk at any point along the way.
He’s hoping this year’s event will surpass last year’s, which saw 50 people participate and raise more than $2,000 for CancerCare Manitoba. Participants can raise pledges before the event or make a pledge afterward.
