City tells residents to ‘get out and play’

City of Surrey officials are challenging residents to join a Canada-wide effort to log one million minutes of play during the month of June.

The Million Minutes of Play Challenge is to encourage healthy, active communities, said Mayor Dianne Watts.

“And with our fantastic parks, recreation facilities and natural areas, the City of Surrey provides endless opportunities to be active. So, I encourage everyone to take this challenge and get out there and play!”

The challenge was initiated by the city of Ajax, On., as part of CBC’s Live Right Now campaign, a movement designed to help Canadians make small, manageable changes that will have a large and lasting effect on their overall health. All kinds of activities count, from skateboarding and dancing to Frisbee and playing tag.

The Million Minutes of Play Challenge is the first initiative launched under Surrey’s new “Be Active Surrey” campaign. To join the challenge, visit www.surrey.ca/millionminutes
