My Be Well Story - with Manitoba Canola Growers

Earlier this month, the Manitoba Canola Growers launched a national contest called My Be Well Story. The contest gives all entrants a chance at winning a video prize package valued at over $5000.

Do you know someone with a Be Well Story or are you living a Be Well Story?

It could be someone making a difference in their community, a business that’s doing it for the right reasons, or someone that has made a positive change in their life that has inspired others to do the same. It could be you?!?

You can read all the details and see three of the very inspiring videos that have already been made here.
