Picture YOU Healthy week 2 winner

Taking time for physical activity

Amy Stephen is our week 2 winner – she took this photo of seniors taking time for physical activity in Vanderhoof. A great example of both physical activity and building healthy communities!

Building on the fantastic momentum of week 1, week 2 brought us even more amazing photos in the Picture YOU Healthy challenge – both in quality and in thought. We are so pleased at how YOU are interpreting our healthy eating, active living and healthy community messages — and for sharing such great photos of yourselves, your family, friends and community members! Thank you everyone for your submissions!

After careful deliberation, we have chosen our week 2 winner – Amy Stephen, from Vanderhoof, B.C., who submitted this great photo of seniors at the Vanderhoof Seniors Centre taking time for physical activity. Amy describes the photo as “Vanderhoof seniors reaching for the world!”

In speaking to Amy, she told us that she will choose the fitness equipment prize and share it with the Seniors Centre! Amy, you’re definitely an inspiration for building healthy communities!!

We encourage everyone to keep sending in their entries. You have a few more days – deadline to enter to win in the Picture YOU Healthy challenge before March 22. Next week, we’ll showcase this week’s (week 3) winner, and on Monday, we will reveal the top 10 photo submissions and give YOU the chance to vote for the winner on our Facebook page. Stay tuned!
