June is Acts of Random Physical Activity Month!


Believe it or not, but June is right around the corner! Along with warm weather (hopefully), June brings Acts of Random Physical Activity Month to Alberta thanks to Communities ChooseWell and Alberta Recreation and Parks Association

Acts of Random Physical Activity Month is about doing little things throughout the day to help increase the amount of physical activity you receive.  It can be as easy as parking your car a bit further away from work, or making plans on the weekend to enjoy the wonderful parks we have in the area. 

Communities ChooseWell have a Facebook Photo Challenge during June as well.  On Tuesday of each week, post a picture of yourself with family or friends doing the activity in the calendar. Then post it to the Communities ChooseWell Facebook page and get your friends to "Like" the photo. Pictures with the most "Likes" wins a Canadian National Parks Pass! More information can be found here.
