What’s this all about?
And how do I get in?
Well last year we entered the Participation Community Better Challenge but due to Covid, the event was cancelled. But in 2021, in the 50th anniversary of Participaction, the contest is back on. And so are we!
The Community Better Challenge is an annual event that gets Canadians across the country moving together. At the conclusion of the challenge, one community will earn the top prize of $100,000 and title of being Canada’s most active. In addition to the national winner, there will also be prizing for the most active community in each province and territory.
Now, more than ever, physical activity and sport participation need to be prioritized to help Canadians stay healthy in mind, body, and community spirit. And the 2021 challenge will be extra fun as ParticipACTION celebrates its 50th anniversary!
So how does it work?
Every minute of activity from every member in our postal code gets tallied and we submit our community hours to Participaction for a prize. How will we know how many activity minutes you had? Download the Participaction app and that’s all there is to it. The rest is magic.
What kind of activities can you do?
Any type really but the way we submitted our event was walking thinking it was Covid friendly. And we’ve got a lot of walkers here in town…alone, with others, with pets, with kids in strollers, wagons, bicycles… But hey, you’re not restricted to that. Running, dancing, yoga, whatever you do, enter it in the app and it will become part of our community total. When you download the app you can win great prizes for yourself, after all, we want to congratulate you for being active. If you don’t want to use the app, you can track physical activities for yourself or your family on the Participaction website starting June 1.
