Did you know that Headingley was crowned Central Canada’s Most Active Community and awarded a $20,000 Prize??!!

How exciting!

The ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge is a brand-new annual physical activity challenge that is bringing communities together with physical activity and sport participation. The challenge started May 31 and ran through June 16th, 2019.

Every minute of physical activity tracked by every user in our community went  towards Headingley’s total score. We finished with just under 1.25 MILLION active minutes tracked!  How amazing!

Residents of all ages participated and we did it with heart!  The Challenge united groups from every demographic and encouraged everyone to exercise together, particularly community groups which might not otherwise interact.  Children at both the daycare and Phoenix school were thrilled and so proud to receive daily updates on Headingley’s standings and the senior community was equally anxious to log its active minutes each day. The Grade 5 students even asked if they could do a project relating to the challenge!

It was remarkable to see everyone get so excited about attaining a common goal. This is definitely a first step towards many more future partnerships within these groups and their enthusiasm was truly special and inspiring.   Special thanks to Phoenix School, Phoenix Nursery School, Bright Beginnings Educare, local Sports Teams, Headingley Senior Services, the RM of HeadingleyMacdonald Headingley Recreation Discrict, the Headingley Chamber of Commerce, the Headingley Times and the volunteers who helped coordinate our resources and get the message out.

Join us to celebrate our victory at the upcoming Family Fun Day and Slo-Pitch Tournament on Saturday July 13th at the Headingley Community Centre (5353 Portage Ave).
