Jack Frost week at a glance:
Sunday: Jack Frost Challenge Kick Off | February 12th, 11am – 3pm @ The Forks
Come skate, ski, walk or bike the River Trail to kick off The Jack Frost Challenge. Look for our booth near the wharf/water taxi and enjoy some treats and warm hot chocolate! This is the chance to get outside with some like-minded friends and enjoy the some winter recreation! We will also be offering guided skates to the Legislature, every hour on the hour.
Monday: Glide into the week
Sharpen those skates! We challenge you to put metal to ice and track some Kilometers on skates today! Don’t you know the river trail is open?!
Tuesday: Skis, please
Pack up the car, pick up a few friends and head out to do a lap or two on your skis! Join Green Action Centre’s Justin Quigley at the Harbourview Trail at 5:15 pm for a group ride. He’ll be your snowy valentine on Tuesday Feb 14th.
Wednesday: Get schooled
Calling all classrooms! Spend some time outdoors and tag #JackFrostChallenge and @GreenActionCtr on social media so we can see all the fun you’re having. Tag a nearby school to challenge them to get out there, too!
Thursday: Team up!
Why don’t you air out those hump day blues with your pals around the office? Post a pic of your team out in nature for your lunch hour or break #JackFrostChallenge.
Friday: Chill out
What’s the rush? Why don’t you walk to work today or get off the bus early and soak up some cool air for a few blocks before you get to your desk?
Saturday: Wrap Up Party | February 18th, 4pm-6:30pm @ The Common
Cap off The Jack Frost Challenge by enjoying a fun afternoon at the Forks with your friends, old and new, who participated alongside you during the challenge! We’ll also be cheering on the participants of Actif Epica, a grueling 130 km winter bike ride across the prairies, whose finish line is at the forks the same day.
