North and South: a friendly competition


The Township of South Dundas, along with the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, is proud to announce the launch of the South Dundas Charter for Active Living. 

To kick off the launch, we are planning an “On the Go Dundas County” challenge where South Dundas will compete against North Dundas in a healthy living challenge. 

Linking Hands and the Eastern Ontario Health Unit are teaming up with North Dundas and South Dundas Townships to challenge all residents to exercise and eat well for four weeks. This is a competition between the townships to see who can get the most participants. 

The challenge will encourage residents of all ages to incorporate physical activity and healthy eating into their daily routine. 

The “On the Go” challenge will be taking place between June 3rd and July 14th with the best four weeks used to accumulate the minimum necessary minutes and servings for both physical activity and healthy eating. 

You can pick any four week period between June 3rd and July 14th to take the challenge.

If residents meet the minimum requirements they will be entered into a draw for prizes. Prizes include gift certificates for recreation programs, green food bags and other great prizes.

We encourage you to participate in order to accumulate points for your township to see which township gets the most participants.

You can pick up your On the Go tracking and prize entry form at the township office, 4296 County Road 31, as well as at any of the Dundas libraries.

The goal of the South Dundas Charter for Active Living is to improve the physical and mental well-being of South Dundas residents by encouraging families and individuals to integrate active living in their everyday life as they learn, work and play through continued education, promotion of healthy living and accessible programming. 

We want to ensure that every resident has the chance to live an active lifestyle through accessible and affordable recreation programming, accessible parks and playing fields and community activities.
