The British Columbia city of Enderby has been crowned the most physically active community in Canada in the first annual Participaction challenge.

The victory comes as the city in B.C.’s north Okanagan tracked almost two million activity minutes while hosting events like the Dash n’ Splash, a flash mob and the Foam Fest.

In addition to the most active accolade, Enderby takes home the top prize of $150,000, which it plans to spend on recreation infrastructure projects.

There are also five regional winners that won $20,000 each for their efforts: Amqui, Quebec, Gameti, N.W.T., Harvey, N.B., Headingley, Man., and Marathon, Ont.

Elio Antunes, CEO of Participaction, a national non-profit organization, says the two-week challenge was an amazing opportunity to get Canadians moving and show that everything gets better with exercise.

Enderby Mayor Greg McCune says it’s been exciting to watch their already lively community band together to encourage, support and engage in the challenge.
