Recreation NL celebrates successful 30-Day Physical Activity Challenge
April 30, 2015 | Recreation NL
Recreation Newfoundland and Labrador (Recreation NL) is excited to announce that 71 communities, 58 schools, and over 40,000 people were reached during the province-wide 30-day community physical activity challenge.
Individuals, schools and community groups came together and scheduled fun activities throughout the month of April with a chance of winning over $30,000 in physical activity prizes.
Residents of all ages and abilities came together to find their fit. There were many activities taking place during the month including cross-country skiing, building snow sculptures, line dancing, shuffleboard, mom and tot programs, Mayor walks and “Walk Across Canada” teacher challenges.
Recreation NL will be concluding the 30-Day Community Physical Activity Challenge at the Municipal NL Symposium at Hotel Gander this evening where they will be engaging municipal leaders in a variety of activities to help them find their fit and bring back ideas to their communities.
Winners of the challenge will be announced in the coming days but Recreation NL encourages people to continue to find their fit as we move towards June, the month we celebrate Recreational activities across the province.

Blair Delaney, President of Recreation NL, “It was amazing to see the number of communities and the types of activities that were offered throughout the month for this physical activity challenge. I would like to personally thank all of the recreation professionals and volunteers who have assisted us in making this new initiative a successful one and remember that finding a physical activity to fit you is EASY!”
