justguysCHS-MC is pleased to announce the 3rd Just the Guys Getaway; Winter Urban Adventure. This program is for boys with an inherited bleeding disorder, ages 7 to 17, and their fathers or other significant male adult. This is an exciting opportunity to connect and grow together through a combination of fun-filled group activities and informal information sharing sessions. There will also be lots of free time so that everyone can enjoy the pool at the Best Western Plus Hotel in Headingly Manitoba, just outside the Winnipeg Perimeter.

We are pleased to have an amazing planning committee! We have John Schmitke, Canada’s 2014 Hemophilia Hero and Jake Figler, who is currently participating as a Canadian representative in the international Step Up and Reach Out program. Both gentlemen have emerged as young leaders in our community. Manitoba Bleeding Disorder Program adult physiotherapist, Greig Blamey, is a fun and excellent educator and has travelled with John to other Chapter’s for their “Just the Guys” programs. This is Eric Keilback’s first volunteer experience sitting on a planning committee.  A detailed agenda of the plans for this Winter Urban Adventure will be sent to all registered participants by February 9th, 2015.

There is no fee to attend; however, those attending are responsible for their own transportation to and from the retreat*
