Selkirk! Let’s Community Better, Together

Now, more than ever, physical activity and sport participation need to be prioritized to help Canadians stay healthy in mind, body, and community spirit. The ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge is a national physical activity initiative that encourages Canadians to get active in search of Canada’s Most Active Community.

It is open to everyone and all minutes tracked on the app and website from June 1 – 30 count toward a community’s total score. After June 30, 50 finalist communities will be invited to submit an application explaining why they deserve to be Canada’s Most Active Community. One community will earn the top prize of $100,000 and title of being Canada’s most active. There will also be prizing for the most active community in each province and territory.

Join us for a kick-off party at the Kin Centre on June 1, 2024, 1-3 pm. Details below.

There are 4 ways to track your movement minutes!

3) As a group, school, organization, or  workplace

Organizations, schools, sport groups, recreation centers and workplaces can participate in the challenge by tracking the group activities they organize like in-person or virtual group exercise classes, practices, events or even lunchtime walks on the Community Better Challenge website from June 1 – 30.

Every minute tracked goes toward your municipality’s score. The more organizations that participate the better the municipality’s chances of being named Canada’s Most Active Community. So spread the word, engage your community in physical activity and have a lot of fun while you’re at it! We encourage coaches, teachers and community leaders to track the minutes of their group on the app or website to our communities movement minutes!
