Spring Into Action Challenge 2019

Spring Into Action is an annual challenge that Horizons Community Development Associates Inc. issues to our colleagues, friends and families. This year it took place from April 8 to May 19, 2019. The purpose of the campaign was for all of us to get physically active, and fit for summer!

The goal of the challenge is for participants to achieve at least 30 minutes of physical activity, five days each week of the six-week challenge. There are opportunities for every team and individual to win great weekly prizes by achieving this goal, and grand prizes are awarded at the end of the challenge.

This year, David of team IC Digby was our individual grand prize winner of $100.

The team grand prize of $150 donation to a recreation/ sports initiative for youth made in the team’s name went to the Fitness Junkies. Their grand prize donation will benefit the Pisiquid Canoe Club, in support of registration costs for a child in their summer-long paddling camps for children and youth.

We look forward to the Spring into Action challenge every year - meeting new people, and welcoming back those that join us every year. We are inspired by the commitment of our participants, and are delighted when they share with us what it has meant to them.

This challenge was a reset for me. I had gotten away from my exercise. My team and this challenge gave me the motivation I need to get moving again. Thanks for arranging this! - Chrissy

This challenge has helped me become more active every day and not procrastinate and do it another time. I plan on keeping up the time journal that I started to remind me to keep going. Even with this rainy spring I have found way to be active, just have to think outside the box. - Wanda

…this experience has been absolutely wonderful and has made me more focused and determined to improve my activity level. I loved being on a team and sharing our efforts, encouraging each other, and simply enjoying what this has done for so many people. I plan to continue to connect with others to the end of June but our expectations will be simple. We are asking all to exercise 30 min a day for at least 5 days a week and eat healthy for at least 5 days a week until the end of June. We'll just record the days and not the activities as it gets busy this time of year. We already have interest so we'll start next week. Thanks again for your Spring into Action challenge!! - Linda

Thanks to all our Springers for a terrific challenge - we are already looking forward to next year!
