ParticipACTION Teen Challenge #BeAnOutsider Challenge Announced
October 9, 2015
A new study of Canadian parents and teens found that teens are spending only 7.9 hours per week being active outdoors – less than half of the 17.5 hours their parents spent participating in outdoor activities just a generation earlier. In response, ParticipACTION Teen Challenge sponsored by Coca-Cola Canada has launched the #BeAnOutsider challenge. From October 5 to November 6, teens and community organizations who Tweet or Instagram a photo of themselves getting active outdoors with the hashtag #BeAnOutsider will be entered to win weekly prizes including Canadian Tire gift cards and ParticipACTION prize packs.
