#ygkChallenge: Get Active in April

babysit, help a parentWelcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.

This week’s challenge encourages you to:

Get Active in April. During the entire month of April, Kingston Gets Active has organized free activities, information sessions and workshops to help Kingstonians to explore physical activities. A total of 37 participating organizations are offering over 800 free opportunities ranging from beginner barefoot bootcamps to Jiu Jitsu for kids, roller derby to indoor soccer and much, much more. Kingston Gets Active is a community-wide initiative that raises awareness of the benefits of physical activity and helps to create and enhance opportunities that will enable residents to be physically active on a regular basis. If you’re looking for something new, or see an activity you’ve always wanted to try (for free), what better time than April to get acquainted with a new sport and lifestyle change.

Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines.

  • I'm in. I started cycling again last week, and will do that this week as much as I can. Or walking. Walking is good too.
