Active Living Challenge Day

May 14, 2009

MAY 21 is Alberta Active Living Challenge Day

Last year over 50,000 Albertans were active for thirty minutes on Active Living Challenge Day. This year we want to top that number!

Each year the Alberta Active Lifestyles Partnership challenges all Albertans to get active for at least thirty minutes. We don’t care how you do it! Run, walk, skip, wheel, bicycle, dance, garden, do yoga, play soccer, or swim. Just get active for thirty minutes and then register your activity. Let’s top last year’s number!

The Provincial Fitness Unit of Alberta, Alberta Yoga Association, Hole’s Greenhouse and the Alberta Sport Recreation Parks and Wildlife Foundation are sponsoring FREE YOGA Sessions across Edmonton in support of Active Living Challenge Day.
