Red Deer is joining the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge, which runs from June 1 to 30.
Red Deer Wellness Network encourages Red Deerians to help the city be named Canada’s most active community.
ParticipACTION is awarding $100,000 to the community that rallies the most participants and accumulates the most active minutes, as well as a new provincial prize.
All residents age 17 and up are encouraged to join the challenge.
Individual and team prizes can be won through the ParticipACTION app when residents log their activity minutes.
Schools, sport organizations, workplaces and gyms are also encouraged to track their activities as a group. Families can track for their whole family.
To participate as a group, go to www.participaction.com/challenge, sign up, and track activity minutes daily or all at once.
The deadline to enter all minutes is July 1 at midnight.
