FirstOnSite: #GoTheDistanceCanada Challenge! Can you “walk” all the way across Canada?

We are excited to announce our #GoTheDistanceCanada Challenge! Now, more than ever, it’s so important to stay healthy and active which is why we are launching this challenge – to encourage our teams to stay fit and have some fun. Physical activity can be a great stress reliever and even going for a short walk can help clear your mind so you can refocus.

Using a specified point system, we are our challenging all FirstOnSite employees to “walk” all the way across Canada – 7,821 km to be exact! It doesn’t matter how you earn your kilometers, all that matters is you get active!

Here’s what you need to know:

  •  The challenge officially kicks off on May 14 with the first weekly activity submission deadline being Thursday, May 21. We anticipate the event going as long as six weeks though it could end sooner.
  •  Track your weekly physical activity and use the provided chart to determine your points for the week. The week runs from Friday – Thursday.
  • You can keep track of your activity by using a pedometer, activity tracker, or cell phone app.
  •  Submit your points by 11:59 pm Eastern each Thursday. (Submit points here)
  •  Share images on social and use the hashtags #GoTheDistanceCanada and #FirstOnSite.
  •  You are competing as a region as well as individually and we will provide weekly leaderboard updates on Fridays.

Prizes:

  1. Regional winner – The first region to make it across Canada wins bragging rights!
  2. Individual winners – The person with the most activity points in each region will win a paid day off! (One winner per region, five winners total)

CAN YOU GO THE DISTANCE?

LIV North: Join Us at the Joy Ride 2020 for Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta

Proud supporters since 1993, Apple Fitness is proud to sponsor Joy Ride 2020. As part of its commitment to support Make-A-Wish and the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, the company is providing 30 spin bikes to be used at the event. Following the event, these extremely popular, commercial-grade  Keiser M3i Indoor Cycles will be offered for purchase for a special price of $1,899 plus tax — nearly $1,000 off retail. And it gets even better: Apple will donate $100 for every bike sold back to Joy Ride 2020!

So, gather your coworkers, friends or family and join the Joy Ride! Teams will embark on a 12-hour stationary ride at this energetic and fun filled event.

The more people on your team, the more ways you can divide your 12 hours. One person from your team must be riding at all times. Ride for 3 hours or ride for 15 minutes but whatever you do, don’t stop riding.

At Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta and the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation, kids are our first priority. We share a community of children—many Stollery kids are wish kids too—and offer support at different points of their medical journeys. We have a common goal: to give sick kids a fighting chance and change their lives.

By forming a team and joining the Joy Ride, you will make a difference in the lives of our kids. It’s an event that requires just a little of your time but makes such a big impact in return.
