How does #HealthyHuntsville Work?

  • When you take the pledge, you will get a sticker to put on your car that shows that you promised to do something healthy for yourself: park and walk! A Town staff member will be in touch to arrange for your sticker.
  • Enter to win cool prizes at the end of the summer, like Downtown BIA bucks and leisure and recreation passes for the Canada Summit Centre. 

Is This a Contest?

Sort of. It's more of a commitment to getting healthy, parking in areas where you can walk to main street, taking photos of your healthy [new] habits and sharing with us to win sweet prizes!

Prizes:

  • Downtown BIA Bucks to use at a variety of stores on the Main Street
  • Leisure passes to the Canada Summit Centre
  • Gift certificates and prizes from Pharmasave, The Great Vine, Ahimsa & Whimsical Bakery

Why Should I Pledge to Park and Walk?

  • Walking is healthy for you: it lowers your risk of certain diseases and cancers, improves your mood and gives higher energy levels
  • Walking is healthy for Huntsville: less traffic and better air quality
  • Less time spent trying to find a prime spot and more time to spend doing your errands and exploring downtown with family and friends
  • Enjoy the downtown area: smell the flowers and notice the Tom Thomson murals! Who knows what you might see, that you hadn't noticed before

What if I Participated Last Year?

Glad to see that you are invested in the Healthy Huntsville initiative.

Please take the pledge again and don't forget to photo share to be entered to win prizes!
