ParticipACTION Teen Challenge

A message from ParticipACTION: After great success, the 10-year, $10 million partnership between Coca-Cola Canada and ParticipACTION to support the ParticipACTION Teen Challenge program has come to an end as of March 31st, 2017.

The ParticipACTION Teen Challenge, coordinated through Recreation NL in this province and sponsored by Coca-Cola Canada, is a national physical activity program delivered by a network of community-based organizations working together to break down the barriers teens (13-19) face in getting active.
