Oakville announces 2011 Junior Summer Active Challenge winners

The Town of Oakville announced the winners of the third annual Make Your Move Junior Summer Active Challenge at a prize presentation held Monday evening at Town Hall. 

“The goal of the Junior Summer Active Challenge is to motivate children and families to become more active by increasing their levels of daily physical activity,” said Nina deVaal, director of Recreation and Culture. “We did just that. Hundreds of Oakville kids took the challenge and we applaud them for making this program an enormous success.” 

As part of the Junior Summer Active Challenge, children aged four to 14 were encouraged to increase their fitness levels by completing 30–60 minutes of daily physical activity for a total of 60 activities from June 1 through September 1.  Once each participant completed their 60 activities, they were entered into a draw for great prizes including free program registrations, park passes, swimming lessons and theatre tickets.
