More than 2,700 students from 33 schools across British Columbia have successfully completed the Challenge. The Go Active! Fitness Challenge, presented by McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada Limited with support from the Canadian Olympic Committee, promotes physical activity amongst students.

By participating in the Go Active! Fitness Challenge and exercising regularly, British Columbia students were able to improve on all six compulsory exercises, including crunches, push-ups, 50-metre dash, shuttle run, standing long jump and an endurance run. Participants’ scores were measured in May and combined with those achieved in September to determine their level of improvement.
