Be Active Every Day is an annual Doctors of BC initiative to help kids be more active and make healthy choices. In partnership with their local elementary school, doctors across BC coordinate a month-long challenge to kids: Be active 60 minutes every day in October.
The Challenge is set to start the week of Monday October 3rd with a follow up visit in the last week of October. Last year more than 4700 students in 33 schools were challenged by 40 doctors and resident doctors with the help of nurse practitioners, divisions, and athletes across the province!
When doctors lead students through the activity challenge, kids can learn about the importance of good health, nutrition, and fitness from a medical perspective. The goal is to make a lasting impact on children and help them turn healthy choices into healthy habits.
