RESIDENTS of the North Shore have the chance to win their community thousands of dollars - all they have to do is walk.
On now until Sept. 19, Healthy Families B.C. will be hosting a walking challenge. Residents can win prizes by sharing stories, photos or videos of their favourite walks online.
The walking challenge will include weekly prizes, such as pedometers and soccer balls, or a family vacation to a popular B.C. destination. At the end of the challenge there will be a cash prize of $100,000 awarded to the top five participating communities.
Each of those five communities will receive $10,000 to support the development of local walking trails and one of those communities will be randomly selected to receive an additional $50,000.
To be eligible for the contest residents should post their walking stories at www.healthyfamiliesbcwalkingchallenge.ca.
