Did you know that
Everything gets better when you get active?
Even communities!

Are you ready to get active with the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge?

Connect with friends and neighbours and build social bonds while also having a lot of fun participating in physical activity right in your own neighbourhood.

Your community could win the prize of $150,000 and be crowned Canada’s Most Active Community.

The challenge will run between May 31st and June 16th.

Let’s Community Better, together

The Community Better Challenge is an annual event that aims to get neighbourhoods across the country moving together.

Oh, did we mention that your community could win $150,000 to go toward physical activity improvements if it’s crowned as Canada’s Most Active Community? It’s true!

At the conclusion of the challenge, one community will earn the top prize and title of being Canada’s most active. In addition to the national winner, there will also be finalists recognized from all regions of Canada who will be awarded $20,000.

So, be sure to get moving and tracking your physical activity minutes.

How do I track my minutes?

Check out the Apple App Store or Google Play and download the new ParticipACTION app.

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.

or

Starting May 31, you can also track active minutes for yourself, your family, or an organization here.

Looking to participate as a group, school or organization?

The challenge is open to all Canadians, but we are also encouraging organizations, schools, sport groups and workplaces to participate and track their minutes as a team.

Spread the active word, get your networks engaged in physical activity and have a lot of fun while you’re at it!

Organizations and groups can use ParticipACTION’s digital toolkits to run physical activities for their community. Register an event today.
