CMV Mission Possible is an annual event designed exclusively for kids, welcoming all children to participate. This initiative inspires and empowers young minds to chase their dreams, whether it’s solving puzzles, mastering dance moves, or unleashing their creativity.

Each child sets a personal goal they want to achieve during the event. Once they reach their goal, they are rewarded with exciting CMV Mission Possible stickers, a certificate of achievement, and a special prize of their choice, delivered right to their doorstep. This approach ensures that kids feel motivated and celebrated for their accomplishments.

Past Events

Le Classique

Date : 2013 - 2020

​​Le Classique was a major winter event in St. Boniface from 2013 to 2020, growing into Western Canada’s largest outdoor 3-on-3 ball hockey tournament. What started as a fundraiser for congenital CMV screening led to the founding of the Canadian CMV Foundation when the organizers realized the need for a dedicated organization in Canada.

Despite a few cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Le Classique was a beloved tradition that brought the community together and made a significant impact in the fight against congenital CMV.
