CPAC's Community Physical Activity Challenge

Sun Life Financial Centre for Physically Active Communities is inviting students, staff, faculty, alumni, and any community members to join them in their effort to motivate the community to get active with the Community Physical Activity Challenge. 

COVID-19 has severely impacted where and how we access physical activity, and we are now spending more time on screens while prioritizing exercise less. That’s why we are excited about challenging the community get out of their chairs, look away from the screen, get outside, and get active! This free Challenge runs from February 1st to February 28th and registration is open now!

Teamwork makes the dream work! The Community Physical Activity Challenge is a team step challenge that will be tracked through the MoveSpring app. Your team will work together to compete for the #1 spot on the Team Leaderboard by achieving the highest average steps! Anyone is welcome to participate in the challenge, and it can be a great (COVID-19 safe) way to re-connect in a shared experience with friends or family! There will be prizes awarded for the team with the highest average steps each week, the overall top stepping team, and there will be individual prizes as well.

The MoveSpring app syncs with your wearable technology (like a Fitbit) or Google Fit/Apple Health apps to upload step numbers to the Challenge. If you do not own this technology, you can also manually enter your steps by navigating to the MoveSpring website. If you are using manual entry, you can calculate your steps by using the Activity to Steps chart provided in the challenge.


You can create your MoveSpring account by downloading the MoveSpring mobile app via the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android) or navigate to in a web browser.
