June is Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Awareness Month around the world.
This year’s global theme is Reduce Your Risk. We will be sharing educational resources and information about risk reduction practises all month long.

Walk, Wheel or Wiggle for CMV
In 2021, CMV Canada hosted Canada’s first national awareness and fundraising event for CMV – Walk, Wheel or Wiggle for CMV. Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, the CMV community came together to make the event a success.
This year, we are thrilled to be adding in-person events in Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg!
Register until JUNE 3, 2022 to receive your registration package and branded items. Participants can still register to fundraise after June 3, but we cannot guarantee you a registration package in time for event day.
On JUNE 18, 2022, you can participate remotely from wherever you are, or you can attend one of our in-person events.
