We are very proud of MES’s own Steffan Reimer who finished fourth in the 2017 Manitoba Full Marathon. Steffan was also the recipient of the 2016 Bob Walker Memorial award which honours the fastest Manitoban male and female athletes between the ages 19 and 29.
Footsteps, the participant newsletter of the Manitoba Marathon, recently highlighted Steffan’s Marathon Profile in the October issue.

The following is a health notice also fournd on HSD.ca.
As a new school year begins, illnesses, including mumps, can be spread easily between children and their families. Manitoba continues to see mumps disease circulating, with 1057 confirmed cases as of October 6, 2017. Mumps has been seen in all populations, including pre-school and school-aged children.
Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living (MHSAL) would like to ensure all parents and guardians are aware that the mumps outbreak continues, how to recognize its symptoms, how to prevent its spread and what to do if they suspect they or their child(ren) may be infected with mumps.
