There are many great prizes to be won by NWT Walk to Tuk teams, participants, and captains!

Grand Prize

*Some restrictions may apply.

Weekly Prizes

Stay tuned for weekly prize draws for teams who submit walking time/distance every two weeks—you could be a winner! Winners will be announced on the Walk to Tuk news page every Tuesday.

Prizes may include: Northern Store gift certificates, healthy food baskets, walking poles, and NWTRPA jackets.


Team Captain Prize

Team captains are essential to Walk to Tuk for many reasons, not the least of which is the role they play helping to motivate their team. At the end of the challenge, all team captains who have submitted their team’s walking time/distance on schedule will be entered into a draw for a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy S10+ (128GB) donated by Northwestel.
