Wawanesa Insurance Walk To Fight Arthritis

Wawanesa Walk for ArthitisYourStyle Financial was at the Wawanesa Insurance Walk to Fight Arthritis in Winnipeg on Sunday, June 5, 2016!

“We are grateful for YourStyle Financial’s support of the Walk,” says Donna Wills, Regional Manager for Manitoba/Nunavut.  “YourStyle sponsored the event, helped promote the event in their newsletter and entered a very energetic team! They were among the almost 500 walkers who raised nearly $65,000 for, The Arthritis Society, Prairie Division – Manitoba/Nunavut. THANK YOU YourStyle!”
