Walking Community Challenge
The Plant Pool Recreation Association (PPRA) is organizing a Walking Community Challenge for the month of October.
The goal is to encourage us all to get outdoors and be physically active during the pandemic, particularly as we head into colder weather. We ask all participants to be mindful of physical distancing practices.
Participants who sign up will become part of a group on Facebook or Whats App where they will share pictures of their walks, record their steps, receive encouragement, and become eligible for individual and group prizes.
Go a step further, become a Champion
Each group will be animated by a Champion who will receive an honorarium of $100.
Group Champions (with help from PPRA organizers) will be responsible for:
- recruiting individuals to join their group;
- setting up a group on whats app or facebook;
- helping and encouraging participants to post their pictures and steps taken during their walks;
- submitting the names of participants who walked at least 30,000 steps each week; and,
- helping the group produce a one page collage of their group’s best pictures.
Walk your way to a prize
Prizes will be awarded to an individual every week from a draw of those who walked a minimum of 30,000 steps that week (gifts cards of up to $50). At the end of the month there will be group prizes based on the one page collage of each group’s photos.
