And now, the town has a chance to win over $100K while promoting physical activity by participating in the Community Better Challenge.
According to the town’s Twitter page, the goal of this challenge is to muster communities to move more and sit less.
By participating in the challenge, Halton Hills could win $150,000 which would go towards physical activity initiatives.
