Let’s Make Summerland Canada’s Most Active Community!
Summerland will be participating in the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge which takes place June 1- 30.
The Community Challenge is open to all organizations and individuals, ultimately recognizing one community as Canada’s Most Active Community and awarding it with $100,000 to support local physical activity initiatives.
Individuals, families and local organizations can track their physical activity on the ParticipACTION App or website. All the minutes tracked by our residents are added to Summerland’s community score. At the end of the challenge, the leading community from each province and territory will be invited to submit an application explaining why they deserve to be Canada’s Most Active Community and win $100,000.
Why should we participate?
