Back in 2017 my Grandpa got diagnosed with cancer for the 3rd time. This time it was terminal and it was devastating for our family. As we sat around a few of us decided we wanted to try putting on a curling bonspiel to raise money for Cancer. On February long weekend of 2018 in Minnedosa MB we quickly threw together a bonspiel and titled it Curling for a Cure. We raised just under $4000 that year and my grandpa passed away 2 days following the event. We decided to do it again in 2019 and we were able to grow the event making $13,300 and in year 3 2020 we raised just over $18,000 after a couple year break due to the pandemic we are back for our 4th year in 2023 and we are on track to crack $20,000 raised for this years event! Which will put us at a 4 year total of over $55,000 raised for Cancer research!
Our event continues to grow and reach new heights every year. It brings together experienced curlers and new curlers every year for a common goal to get out on the ice have some fun all while raising money for a great cause!
