CPAC Active April Challenge

Event Details

Join Wilfrid Laurier University’s Sun Life Centre for Physically Active Communities for an active April! To keep momentum going after our extremely successful community challenge hosted in Waterloo in February, we are excited to host our second challenge of 2022 in Brantford! The MoveSpring app will house the challenge once again and all are welcome (even those who competed in the February challenge) to sign up!

The April challenge will be slightly different than the February challenge, however, you will once again compete as an individual. Once you join, you will be asked to set up your challenge goal. This will be your step goal for the month and can be anywhere from 4000-15,000 steps. The goal will be to see how many days in a row you can complete your goal (known in the app as a streak)! Additionally, there will be an individual leaderboard to see how you stack up against other participants. We have added a group virtual race, where everyone competing in the challenge will work together to step the distance equivalent to 25,000 km throughout the month. There will also be mini-challenges to participate in that will be announced weekly in the app.

Those who complete workouts or activities that don’t necessarily track steps (e.g. cycling) will be able to convert those activities to steps using the in app conversion tool. Additionally, even if you do not have wearable technology (a smart watch) or a smartphone, you can still compete by entering your steps manually using an internet browser!

Key Facts:
● When: April 4, 2022 – May 1, 2022

● Where: The challenge takes place on the MoveSpring app, but activities can be completed anywhere!
● Prizes: There will be weekly prizes awarded throughout the challenge!
