Virtual Campus Rec – Great Big Move Challenge
UFV REACH has partnered up with ParticipACTION for the Great Big Move event to virtually explore Canada while encouraging everyone to be physically active. Event runs from October 1 to 31. To participate you will need to download the ParticipACTION app.
This challenge can be done on your own or as a team of 2-8 people. Once you are signed up, your move minutes are tracked and milestones along the route are unlocked. As you and your team are active, the unlocked milestones, increase your chances of winning awesome prizes through ParticipACTION.
Don’t forget the UFV REACH team is also giving away prizes for individuals who submit their active minutes on the Attendance Verification form* each week which can be found on MyCampusLife.
*Are you a UFV faculty or staff member? We’ve got a Validation Form just for you! (visit //ufv.ca/campusrec for links)
