The Mamingwey Burn Survivor Society was formed in Manitoba in 2003 and is a division of the Firefighters’ Burn Fund Inc.  We are a volunteer-run charity that provides support for burn survivors by planning and holding annual conferences for burn survivors, their families and friends, as well as Burn Unit staff and firefighters.  The journey from burn patient to burn survivor is a long and painful one.   Physical pain, long hospitalizations, disfigurement, and emotional and psychological trauma are issues that survivors experience.  Many burn survivors have to deal with a change in their appearance, which directly affects their self-esteem and body image.  Some burn survivors find it overwhelming to be seen out in public, so bringing burn survivors together allows them to provide support for one another, share their stories, and help each other heal from the psychological aspects of their unique injuries.  

The Go For the Burn Run is a fundraiser for the Society, as well as a way to encourage our community of survivors to be active, healthy, and to achieve their best physical condition.  We encourage any and all to join us; wheelchair participants are welcome and encouraged to attend!
