Membership

It is so great to see everyone back at the Club and enjoying all that we have to offer. As the weather gets colder (I’m sorry, I had to say it), we are excited to enjoy our Club to it’s full potential. We are the Winnipeg WINTER Club after all! Please remember to be mindful of children and families (members and guests) in our parking lot and we encourage you to plan to arrive early during these busy times. 

HELP ALEX CLIMB THAT MOUNTAIN…. TWICE!

You can make your donation and help Alex reach his goal of $100K for CancerCare Manitoba! You can make your donation here or with reception. We are unable to charge to your member accounts, but we will accept cash and cheque. Check out our mountain on the wall leading to the gym, and see how high up that mountain Alex can get for CancerCare Manitoba!

Last week, I mentioned Alex Long’s quest to climb the equivalent distance of Mount Everest 2x in 2 days. Check out this video of ex-Marine/ultra-marathoner/motivator David Goggins finishing 1 mountain challenge!

He refers to the Jacob’s Ladder as the ‘Lie Detector’. You can’t hide anything from the Jacob’s Ladder. Alex is training hard for this quest and we can’t wait to see how much he raises for CancerCare Manitoba!

Welcome to 2020! A new decade and a chance to kick some butt! Here are some upcoming events you can look forward to:

ALEX LONG’S DOUBLE MOUNT EVEREST CHALLENGE

February 1st & 2nd
Last year, WWC member Alex Long climbed the distance of Mount Everest on the Jacob’s Ladder in one day! He did this challenge for fun as part of our WWC February Fitness Challenge. The original challenge was was to climb the distance of Mount Everest on the Jacob's Ladder throughout the entire month. This year, Alex wants to Climb the mountain 2 times in 2 days! What an incredible feat this will be! Alex is doing this to raise funds for CancerCare Manitoba, a charity near and dear to his and many of our hearts. Stay tuned for details on how you can support Alex’s quest!

The membership department would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year!

Don’t forget to invite your visiting friends and family to join you as a guest at the Club over the holidays! We have a daily drop in pass ($20/adult, $10/child) or week long passes for those who would like to use the Club more. To quote a member I spoke to today “I don’t know what we would do as a family over the winter holidays if it wasn’t for the Winnipeg Winter Club”.
