How Moving United Moves Our City Forward

Your participation in Walk This Way contributes to the well-being of our city in may ways, including pandemic recovery, mental health, safe spaces for youth, and resources for families. With every kilometre you travel, you will support mental health and addictions counselling, job training, food security and more.

Let’s show our community how much we can do when we move united! Because we’re all in this together. We are all Winnipeg.

Walk this Way was created to show the power of what we can do when we come together. Contrary to an individual race, our focus is on collective achievement.

By contributing your kilometres alongside your friends, family members, or colleagues, you show that no matter how far you’re able to go yourself, the power of putting our efforts together for one common goal is incredible.

This event is free, so everyone in Winnipeg can take part! Thanks to our generous sponsors, $100,000 will match our steps to build a better community for everyone.

You will connect a device to the event app—either your phone or your fitness tracker—to sync your kilometres to our overall goal. Make sure you open the app or website to sync your activity everyday from September 11-16. If you don’t want to connect or don’t have a device to sync, manual entry is available on the mobile app and on the web.  

Find your device here and follow the directions to connect your device to your MoveSpring account.

To sync steps data into your MoveSpring account you will need to open the MoveSpring app on your phone, or go to the MoveSpring website and click the green Sync button at the top right. MoveSpring cannot sync your steps data if you do not open the MoveSpring app or website.

Apple and Google Fit users must sync steps from the app. This is because it connects to the Health app and Google Fit app directly.

For more detailed syncing instructions, including a video walk through, please visit this article from the Help Center.

Log in to your account. Click on ‘Connect my device now’ and scroll to the bottom to select ‘Manual Entry’. Enter in your kilometres and/or steps. For more information, check out this article for help in the app or on the website.

If you prefer to cycle, roll, dance, or play soccer—just an idea!—you can still track your kilometres and steps to move us all towards our goal.

You can now convert activities directly in your dashboard! Learn more here.

Push notifications allow you to keep up with any content posted in a challenge, stay up to date in chat, and help you remember to sync. Here’s how to adjust notification settings in your account.

When you sign up, you’ll be added to the challenge group chat where you can talk to other participants, all in one convenient place. You can post photos of how you are getting active leading up to and on September 11 and comment words of encouragement to other Winnipeggers. Remember if you’re sharing your walk on social media—and we encourage you to!—use the hashtag #WalkThisWayWPG.

Yes, please! It would be wonderful if everyone in Winnipeg knew about Walk This Way, and joined in! Use the hashtag #WalkThisWayWPG.

Here is a guide you can use to onboard your team.

Let’s get the whole city out for a walk!
