ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge

As part of the Town of Aurora’s June is Recreation and Parks Month initiative, the Town of Aurora will be participating in the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge in partnership with Sport Aurora and Activate Aurora. The ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge is a brand new annual physical activity challenge that is bringing communities together with physical activity and sport participation. The challenge takes place from May 31 to June 16. The Town of Aurora encourages the community to participate and support our community’s effort to be crowned Canada’s Most Active Community. Challenge participants will be able to track their active minutes that will contribute to our community’s total on the FREE ParticipACTION app or on the ParticipACTION website. The Town of Aurora will also be logging minutes for its existing recreation programs that occur during these dates and these active minutes will be put towards our community’s total count.
