We’re excited to announce that this year’s Heritage Club Games are participating in the ParticipACTION Community BetterChallenge from June 1 to 30, as we strive to have West Vancouver named Canada’s Most Active Community!
We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought many challenges and many of us have had to adjust to cancelled or virtual programming. Now more than ever, it’s important to find ways to connect with our friends, family and community and the ‘Community Better Challenge’ can help us do so, safely!
Helping to strengthen communities through physical activity and sport, the Community Better Challenge is awarding $100,000 to the community which rallies the most participants and community organizations, and accumulates the most ‘Active Minutes’ during the challenge. We encourage all residents of West Vancouver to participate and support our Community Better Challenge. Pass the word on! So what can you count towards your Active Minutes?
Aside from the obvious athletic and sporting activities like running, cycling, walking, tennis and golf, you can include gardening, wheeling, backyard play, virtual fitness classes, yoga, kayaking, paddle boarding, and anything else that gets you moving. You can get involved and support the event in many ways – till June 30!
There are TWO ways to log your Active Minutes: (For detailed information please visit the Heritage Club Games website)
Via the Heritage Club Games Website (all ages).
Visit the Heritage Club Games website and manually enter your Active Minutes. All Active Minutes entered directly by you (and by anyone from anywhere) on the website will be credited to West Vancouver on ParticipACTION and automatically enter you into the draw for some great HCG prizes!
AND/OR Via the ParticipACTION Fitness App (ages 17+ only)
Download the ParticipACTION App from the Apple App Store or Google Play and sync it to your smartwatch, or manually enter your Active Minutes into the App. The App uses your postal code to credit your Active Minutes to your community. Using the App will make you eligible for the Canada-wide ParticipACTION weekly prizes!
Community Scavenger Quiz
Visit the Heritage Club Games website and participate in the Community Scavenger Quiz which will also put you in the running for some great HCG prizes!
Thank you in advance for your participation! Please encourage your family members and friends to become involved too as we endeavour to bring home the $100,000 prize to benefit our active community of West Vancouver!
