Over the five eight-week Activity Challenge, Halton Hills residents walked more than 110,000 kms collectively since 2005. More than 2,000 people participated and logged more than 20,000 hours of some form of activity, according to a Recreation and Parks summation report. Participants ranged in age from Robert Little School's Grade 5 class to seniors. Residents can still log on to the Town's website, www.haltonhills.ca to record their weekly physical activities. The program was funded by the Ministry of Health ($23,500), the Town of Halton Hills ($8,000 inkind services) and $6,500 from the Recreation and Parks Department's Active Living operating budget. Recreation and Parks Director Terry Alyman said his staff will continue to build on the momentum and seek out more grants to fund the program.
