Canada’s Most Active Community.

May 31 - June 16

The City of Powell River encourages everyone to get involved in reaching its
goal of being the healthiest and most active community in BC by registering in a brand-new
program from ParticipACTION.
Through its Parks, Recreation and Culture Department, the City has joined with communities
across the country in the inaugural ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge to compete for
the designation as Canada’s Most Active Community.
The rules are simple; sit less and move more through physical activity and sport participation.
Start moving and tracking your minutes beginning Friday, May 31 and keep going until Sunday,
June 16.
“You can encourage your friends, family, coworkers and neighbours to participate by
downloading the ParticiPACTION app and tracking their physical activity minutes everyday
between May 31 and June 16,” said Community Recreation Program Coordinator, Shawna
Rahier. “Riding your bike, mowing the lawn, taking a family walk, or playing a game of slo pitch
all count, so remember to track all your activities”.
A $150,000 grand prize for physical and activities initiatives comes with the title of Most Active
Community. Five regional winners will also be recognized and receive $20,000 each to support
local physical activity initiatives.
