Southern Manitoba

Everyone is affected by cancer, and anyone can make a difference.

For 18 year-old Salmon Arm youth Breyden Erickson, the desire to make a difference motivates him to keep walking on his journey across Canada to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. In his 4th month and his 4th province since leaving Horseshoe Bay on March 23, his Cross Canada Cure is slowly reaching his goal of raising $323,323.00. Many teenagers take a year off after high school before starting a post secondary education. Breyden decided to spend most of that time making a difference, and has walked over 2000 km so far.

The support vehicle driven by Breyden’s grandparents is affectionately known by the family as ‘The Mother Ship’, and officially joined the Cross Canada Cure when Breyden came through the Salmon Arm area. The trek also is being greatly supported by Salmon Arm Mayor Nancy Cooper who has been graciously extending mayor-to-mayor requests to fellow mayors in towns across the country to meet with Breyden and support the cause.

Canada Day marked the 101st day of his trek – and Breyden Erickson is making a difference.

Here is their plan for Southern Manitoba cities.  Breyden and the team are arranging local meetings with media etc.  If you live in or near any of these towns/cities and want to know more or or would even like to walk with him for a bit to show support. please comment or contact us at @TeamBreyden on Twitter.
