Walk to Harrison Hot Springs Challenge
Walking is the number one activity that the majority of Employee Fitness Challenge participants take part in. That being said, we decided to create a walking challenge – Walk to Harrison Hot Springs Challenge!
Who doesn’t love Harrison? There is so much to see and do and the beauty of the surrounding mountains is unmatched anywhere, especially the majestic Mount Cheam, that looks down on Chilliwack and Harrison Hot Springs. It is one of the most prominent peaks in the Fraser Valley with significant spiritual importance to the local First Nations or Stó:lō people who call it “mother mountain” and has been given the responsibility of watching over her people.
Over 14 days, from March 1, 2021 – March 14, 2021 your goal will be to walk (in your neighbourhoods) the equivalent distance between Abbotsford and Harrison Hot Springs. The total distance is 63.7km. which equates to about 4.55 kilometres per day of walking. Or, if you prefer to count your distance in steps, that’s roughly 5,688 to 7,053 steps per day.
This may sound easy for some people, but for others it will be quite a challenge. As opposed to the Hydration Challenge though, if you miss a day, you can always catch up! All participants will be eligible for prizes, whether they finish or not, but in order to be included in the prize draws you will need to submit your weekly progress report by Monday, March 15 at 12:00 noon. The report will have a check box to indicate if you participated, and if you completed!
The grand prize for this challenge is a relaxing get-away at the Harrison Hot Springs hotel with dinner in the Copper Room.
