Try it Out Day
To wrap-up the eighth annual Jack Frost Challenge, Green Action Centre presents Try it Out Day!
Green Action Centre’s sustainable transportation team will be set up on the river from 1-4 pm to provide visitors with the opportunities to try out winter sporting equipment for free, such as; fat bikes and snowshoes. They will provide hot chocolate, educational resources, and enthusiasm for winter activities!
The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are certainly dropping, but that doesn’t mean the fun should stop! The Jack Frost Challenge is back again, making it the ninth year in a row Green Action Centre is getting Manitobans outside and active during winter.
Many people see winter as the time to hibernate indoors, which has serious mental and physical health consequences. Studies show that children play less, older adults walk outdoors less, and people, in general, are less physically active in winter.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, where you live, or how you get around, Jack Frost Challenge is for everyone!
