Spring into health with the Walk30 Burnaby | New West walking challenge!
Burnaby and New Westminster are in a friendly competition to get people to walk at least 30 minutes a day for better health. More than 2700 residents and students are already registered—and the City with the most participants (per capita) will be awarded the Walk30 Challenge Cup! New West is currently in the lead in terms of community participants, while Burnaby has more school classroom teams.
From now until May 11, you can track your daily minutes walked online. Participation is free, you can walk on your own or set up a team for friendly competition, and you can track minutes using a watch, phone or fitness device. Participants can pick up a free WALK30 safety reflector strap; pick up locations will be emailed within a few days of registering.
REGISTER and START TRACKING TODAY: www.walkerscaucus.ca/walk30-burnaby-newwest
Then mark your calendar for the Walking Festival on Saturday, May 12, 10am to 12pm at Edmonds Community Centre. Find out which City won the Walk30 Challenge Cup, connect with other walkers, enjoy free food, entertainment and games, and enter prize draws for parks and recreation passes, and gift cards for iTunes, Waves, SportChek and Save-On-Foods.
Walk to school, work, shop or play – every minute counts! Research shows that walking 30 minutes a day improves health and well-being, even if you reach that magic number by doing a few short walks over the day.
