The District of Summerland is excited to announce that we will be participating in the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge from June 1 – 30, as we strive to be named Canada’s Most Active Community.
Helping to strengthen communities through physical activity and sport, the Community Better Challenge is awarding $100,000 to the community who rallies the most participants and community organizations and accumulates the most active minutes during the challenge.
We encourage all residents and organizations of Summerland to download the free ParticipACTION app or visit https://www.participaction.com/en-ca/programs/community-challenge so you can track your active minutes and contribute to Summerland’s total active minutes.

We are also excited to announce our Community Fitness Challenge – Sunshine & Sweat!
This community fitness challenge will be released on June 3. This challenge will let you explore our community, while getting fit at the same time. From the Historic KVR Trail to our beautiful waterfront, we have created 9 fitness circuits that you can explore in Summerland. Maps will be available online at www.summerland.ca/CommunityBetterChallenge or by request at the Summerland Aquatic & Fitness Centre.
“One of Council’s priorities is to ensure that community design, and municipal facilities and programs enhance inclusive, barrier free access to a variety of physical activities,” said Summerland Mayor Toni Boot. “Movement not only contributes to flexible, strong and healthy bodies, but boosts self-confidence and creates a feeling of happiness and general wellbeing. The District is excited to participate in the Community Better Challenge.”
Every move counts! Let’s Get Active Summerland.
