Event description

Description

The Turning Leaf Games is a track and field event that we hold annually for the participants of our programs and hosts individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities as well as those living with mental illness from across Manitoba.

Turning Leaf Games grew from the vision of bringing together participants and agencies across the region. We wanted to create space for people of all abilities to compete and connect, harvesting a community of comradery, inclusion, and diversity.

The Turning Leaf Games exists for participants to build friendships, self-esteem, and to provide a sense of community for Manitobans living with intellectual challenge and mental illness, as well as raise funds and awareness for Turning Leaf.

This is our 7th Annual Turning Leaf Games, and we cannot wait to watch it continue to grow this year. The day’s program includes a warm up, 100m dash, 400m relay, 100m wheelchair race, discus, long jump, a medal ceremony, yoga cool down, self-care and wellness activities throughout the day, and gift bags for athletes.

We are pleased to share that Mayor Brian Bowman and NHL Alumni Josh Green have confirmed their attendance this year to kick off our opening ceremonies and connect with the athletes and spectators.

We hope you will join us for an incredible day of sport, community and connection!

FAQs

Do I have to bring a printed ticket to the event?

No. If you have "purchased" your free athelete (no lunch) or spectator (no lunch) tickets, your name will be on the guest list at check-in when you arrive. If you have purchased an athlete (with lunch) ticket or a spectator (with lunch) ticket, when you check-in you will receive a free Turning Leaf bracelet that you get to keep - show us your bracelet to redeem your pre-purchased Subway lunch.

Where can we park?

Parking is available at the Subway Soccer Complex located next to University of Manitoba Track and Field Stadium. Parking fees are extra.

What can I bring to the event?

Attendees are encouraged to: bring their own lawn chair, sunscreen, hat, water, dress for the weather, and bring a lunch if they are not planning to pre-purchase the Subway lunch or a hotdog on-site.

There will be a vegetarian sub option only. If you require a vegetarian sub please indicate that preference when you show your bracelet to get your lunch on event day. There is no vegan/gluten-free sub option or ability to customize for dietary restrictions. If you have specialized dietary needs, please consider bringing your own lunch.

What's the refund policy for the pre-purchased Subway lunch?

If an attendee pre-purchases a lunch and is unable to attend the event on June 26, please contact Carol Rusnak at carolrusnak@turningleafservices.com for a partial refund (fees built into ticket sales that are paid to EventBrite are non-refundable).
