Important Information for Walkers 

  • Adults (18+) who register for the 3K Family Walk at the Run for Diabetes-Winnipeg will receive a free Tractivity Essential Bundle (retail value $29.95).

  • Tractivity is an innovative new health awareness solution that discretely tracks your activity—the distance you walk or run, the calories you burn, the amount of time that you are active—all for the purpose of helping you develop a healthier lifestyle. After you register, pick up your product early, so that you can become familiar with it before you track your activity on the day of the event, at the Canadian Diabetes Association office at 200-310 Broadway, Winnipeg.
