Join TEAM BACI ~ Walk/Wheel Challenge

Are you up to a Challenge? Join Team BACI for the Walk/Wheel Burnaby & New West Challenge — from April 9 to May 11.

BACI staff, people and families served, and community friends are invited to be part of TEAM BACI during this month-long challenge for better health. The goal is for each person to walk or wheel at least 30 minutes each day and track their minutes walked/wheeled.

Every minute counts — whether you’re walking to work, to shop, or to other recreational activities. At the end of the month, we’ll see what our Total Team Minutes are.

We’ve challenged two other community living agencies — Kinsight and posAbilities — to a friendly competition. Help us win this friendly rivalry!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

  • Before April 9th — REGISTER online (see details below) or email info@gobaci.com your name, or call 604.299.7851
  • From April 9 – May 11 — Track your walking/wheeling time. If you’ve registered online with the team from BACI, add your individual minutes to the team total — on a daily or a weekly basis. Or email your weekly totals each Friday to info@gobaci.com. By phone, call 604.299.7851 each Friday.

Celebrate the Walk/Wheel 30 Challenge:

  • At Edmonds Community Centre on May 12, 10:00 – noon.
  • At a special BACI celebration. (Date & details to follow)

Research shows that walking 30 minutes a day improves health and well-being — even if you reach that magic number by doing a few short walks over the day.
