Activity Challenge 2019

Shoot For the Moon – WE CAN DO IT!!!
Well here we are in 2019 and we are continuing on with our Shoot For the Moon Challenge.  If you don’t know what this is, it is our collective effort as Denman Islanders to accumulate enough Kilometers to reach the moon. We started at the beginning of 2017 and are making good progress. As I stated before if everyone on Denman Island recorded just 1 Km per day, we would reach the moon (384,000 kms) in 1 year.  So far we have less than 100 people contributing so it is taking us just a little longer. We will finish 2018 somewhere under 250,000 kms (once everyone records their Kms) so if we want to get there by the end of this year we will have to pick up our efforts a little bit.  We will have a new tracking sheet for 2019 on the Activity Centre website ( and you will have to enter your name on the new sheet. I am hopeful that we will have some new people helping us get there. It is very simple. In this issue of The Grapevine will be a calendar that you can keep track of distances covered. Simply tally them up at the end of each month and go to the website to record them. If you don’t have the ability to do that you can email me at or you can drop them off at the medical clinic and I will enter them for you. We have a rocket ship heading for the moon posted at the Activity Centre so you can follow our progress. Many thanks to the folks at the gym who faithfully record their distances from the gym. These help us out a lot, so keep up the good work.  I have great faith that together we will reach the moon by the end of the year. We will be having the occasional walks again so keep your eyes on the Community notices for info. The Community Paramedics will also be organizing some walks as well. We are planning for our annual snowshoe trip up Mt. Washington again on the day after the February Family Day holiday.
