From May 31 until June 16, ParticipACTION is calling on all Canadians to get active and track their physical activity minutes on the ParticipACTION app to help their community get crowned Canada’s Most Active Community and win $150,000. They’re also awarding five regional winners with $20,000 each. The prize money can go toward improvements to a recreation centre, engaging youth in sport, or starting a senior’s walking club – anything that supports local physical activity initiatives.
Every community has an equal chance to win – no matter the size. Each community’s total minutes will be divided by its total population and take into consideration overall community engagement as well as submissions from finalist communities. Winners will be announced at the end of June.
With that in mind, ParticipACTION is looking to you to rally participation in your community by:
- Sparking some friendly rivalries among your colleagues and friends;
- Posting a video on social media encouraging people to download the ParticipACTION app and start tracking;
- Hosting an event that promotes physical activity and provides the opportunity to get active;
- And, of course, personally tracking your physical activity minutes on the ParticipACTION app to help your community’s efforts – after all, every minute counts!
You can help your community show the rest of Canada how it’s done. Are you ready?
Physical activity and sport participation help strengthen communities by boosting the confidence and happiness of individuals, while connecting them to others with common interests. So, ParticipACTION invites you to get together, get active, and get winning.
