We have created an adapted plan for Jack Frost Challenge 2022 that will align with covid-19 restrictions and it’s continuous evolution.
The Jack Frost Challenge centers on activities that increase outdoor physical activity. Health authorities advise that people stay active and get fresh-air for their mental and physical health; this week-long challenge will help emphasize the importance of that.
New programming will help to connect people through shared experiences and goals. We have a very exciting new model for JFC. Check back soon for the cool news!
This will be a great push for Manitobans to get out and get active, and develop healthy habits that will help get them through mentally and physically this covid-winter season.
How Teams Work
Teams do not necessarily mean that you do the activities and kilometres together, but that you work together for a collective goal of reaching 130km for the week. Take part in how you feel comfortable while following any current health restrictions and advisories.
Teams can be whoever you connect with and feel comfortable doing activities with. Friends and family can make it a friendly competition between each other to beat team members distances, colleagues can reconnect in a fun way while each tries a new activity and compares experiences, and workplaces can show their initiative to get their employees moving to contribute as a whole, these are all new, fun and different ways people can reconnect. Each individual participant’s km’s can be logged into their total team (or workplace) count, for better chances to reach the goal and win prizes.
