The Town of Collingwood is one of 45 communities in Ontario taking part in the Healthy Kids Community Challenge promoting physical activity through active play, active transportation and sports or structured physical activity. A number of snowmen have already been built around town, part of a snowman competition that runs until February 19. And Wednesday is National Winter Walk To School Day. A similar event was held in October.

Program Manager Jennifer Parker took time out recently to tell us more about the challenge.
