What is the Gumboot Rally?
The Gumboot rally is the major fundraising event for the Yellowknife Association for Community Living.
Teams of 5 people collect pledges for their team. On the day of the rally, teams dress up and compete against each other in skill testing trials such as the “boot toss” and the “bowl for boots.”
Thanks to the help of our supporters we were able to raise more than $25,000 during the 26th annual Gumboot Rally on May 5, 2018.
We hope to perform just as well this coming spring!
