Local activities

Get involved in an activity in your community during Daffodil Month. Contact your local community office to find out more.

Last year, thousands of Manitobans donned the bright yellow lapel pins that are symbols of hope and determination, showing support for people with cancer and honouring those who have been lost to the disease. It’s a way for everyone to come together in April and fight back against all cancers.

Daffodil pins are available in exchange for a donation at hundreds of locations in more than 100 communities throughout Manitoba.

Take the time during Daffodil Month to do something special for people living with cancer or to further the fight against cancer. Help someone with cancer by:

  • telling them you’re thinking about them and that they are loved
  • running an errand
  • cleaning their house or giving them a ride to treatment or an appointment
  • babysitting their children or spending some time with them
  • cooking a special meal

Advance the fight against cancer in the following ways:
