Red Deer let’s get active together!

We’re excited to announce that Red Deer is participating in the 4th annual ParticipACTION Community Challenge from June 1 – June 30, as we strive to keep the title of Canada’s “Most Active Community”.

The ParticipACTION Community Challenge is helping strengthen communities through physical activity and sport because Everything gets better when you get active. ParticipACTION is awarding a $100,000 prize to the community who rallies the most participants and accumulates the most active minutes during the challenge. Individual participants can also win prizes by recording their activity through the ParticipACTION app.

Red Deer will be awarding local prizes through the Move Your Mood ParticipACTION grant. Local residents will have a chance to win an Apple Watch, a $100 Sport Chek gift card, a $100 Save On Foods gift card, and a five punch pass to the Breathing Room Yoga Studio. To be entered to win, simply share a photo of you or a group getting active on social media and use hashtag #communitybetterreddeer.  If you are not on social media, you can also e-mail a photo to [email protected] . We will draw the winners at the end of June.

We invite all individuals and organizations to get involved. You can participate as an individual by downloading the app and tracking your activity. As an organization you can get involved by creating an active group and track your group activity on the ParticipACTION website. If you have a family, you can track your kids’ activities, sports teams and family activities on the website. You can record any physical activity from exercise classes, team sports and even house cleaning!  Make sure you track from June 1-30. If you have not started tracking already it is not too late, you can go back to June 1 and add your activities on the website. See QR codes on the attached poster.

Thank you for participating in the Community Challenge and helping connect Red Deer citizens through physical activity.

SPARC Red Deer is a local non-profit coalition designed to promote and educate community members and families about the '40 Developmental Assets”. The 40 Developmental Assets, developed by the Search Institute, are research-proven life experiences or building blocks which all children need to grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. Research shows that the higher number of these assets a young person has, the more likely they are to thrive and to engage in positive behaviors. Research also shows that the lower number of these assets a young person has, the more likely they are to engage in risky behaviors. To learn more about SPARC, visit sparcreddeer.ca, or contact Rania Page, SPARC co-chair at 403.896.9431 or [email protected].
