ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge
What is the PariticpACTION Community Better Challenge?
Are you ready to get active with the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge?
The ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge is a brand new annual physical activity challenge that rallies communities to sit less and move more together. We are calling on all Canadians to get active and incorporate physical activity where they live, work and play. And at the conclusion, we’ll recognize and celebrate community achievements, crowning regional winners and ultimately appointing one community with the designation of Canada’s Most Active Community!
Take this challenge on, and our community could win the national grand prize of $150,000 towards physical activity initiatives and be crowned the title of Canada’s Most Active Community! There will also be regional winners who will win $20,000 towards physical activity initiatives of their choice.
So, be sure to get moving and tracking your physical activity minutes! The challenge will run between May 31st and June 16th.
Sounds awesome, where do I sign up?
Track active minutes through the app to be automatically counted toward your community score. The more you track, the greater chance your community has of winning. You also have the chance to win great prizes for yourself when you use the app.
Starting May 31, you can also track active minutes for yourself, your family, or an organization here.
What is ParticiPACTION?
In a country of over 36 million people, how is it that between 25 and 30% of Canadians report feeling persistent loneliness or social isolation? Between increased screen time, busy schedules and family commitments – it’s easier than ever for our neighbourhoods and communities to feel disconnected.
ParticipACTION’s mission is to help Canadians become more regularly physically active and reconnect with each other while doing so. We know that physical activity has the power to break down walls and build stronger communities. Getting active boosts the confidence and happiness of individuals, while connecting them to others with common interests. Simply put, physical activity brings people together.
