Be a Corporate Donor
and Support Women’s Health Research
DANCE FOR YOUR HEALTH FUNDRAISER
Thursday, May 9, 2024
When you partner with the Women’s Health Research Foundation of Canada, you are supporting the development of local graduate researchers and raising awareness for essential research around critical health issues in women and gender-diverse people.
Your sponsorship supports scholarships and inspires students!
Research in women’s health is understudied, underrecognized and undertreated. Our mission is to champion research to improve the physical, social and psychological well-being of women and gender-diverse people through scholarships and other awards.
Since 1992, we have awarded over 50 scholarships to students at the University of Manitoba. This year, our fundraising goal is to endow a third full-time graduate student scholarship. These awards help to fill funding gaps in women’s health research and encourage students to develop a career in this much needed field.
Dinner, Dance and Fun – a night to remember
After a four-year hiatus, we are so excited to bring back our signature fundraising event called Dance for Your Health, which has raised thousands towards student research scholarships. We expect to attract over 100 guests.
It’s a fun evening of fabulous food, including performances from Bollywood Fusion dancers and dance instruction at the Charisma of India Restaurant, 83 Sherbrook Street in Winnipeg, on Thursday, May 9, 2024.
Our most recent scholarship winners will also speak briefly about their research.
