Basketball Manitoba encourages you to get involved in the third year of GET MOVING MANITOBA.  Help Manitobans
get active by organizing a physical activity event in January 2007 in
your community/facility or by registering and designating one of your
previously organized January events.


“A Promise…  A Pledge…  A Plan…  GET MOVING MANITOBA”

The event can be something simple - a family skate at the rink, or maybe a drop-in fitness class.  Consider organizing a parent-children or an alumni sports tournament at your school or community centre. Organize a cross-country ski clinic or maybe a family volleyball night in your community.  The specific nature or size of the event isn't as important as holding an event.  



Simply contact me to let me know about your event – CBC will post details about the time, location, and nature of your event on our CBC GET MOVING website:


As a GET MOVING EVENT, you will receive a GET MOVING EVENT PACKAGE including:

  • -          Posters to publicize your event,

  • -          GET MOVING flyers,

  • -          GET MOVING activity pledge cards (use as entry ballots for prize draw), and

  • -          CBC GET MOVING prize package.

Your organization may also be selected for a one-minute community profile to be aired on CBC television throughout January - GET MOVING month.


Note: You will be required to return all activity pledge cards so they can be entered to win CBC GET MOVING grand prizes including tickets to the IIHF World Women’s Hockey Championships in Winnipeg-Selkirk.



GET MOVING MANITOBA is an initiative of the Physical Activity Coalition of Manitoba (PACM) and the CBC in Manitoba. Its purpose is to promote the benefits of active living and increase awareness of the importance of physical activity, with the intent of assisting Manitobans to become regularly active.
