The Town of Kenaston received some big news earlier this week after participating in what was called the Get Out and Play 10-Day Challenge.

After compiling 419,650 minutes of physical activity, it was announced that Kenaston won the $10,000 grand prize for loging the highest amount of minutes. The challenge ran for ten days with a grand total of 2,899,612 minutes collected throughout the province.

Kenaston has announced they will use the grand prize money towards a project that allows the community to stay active outdoors. The plan is to build an outdoor physical activity and wellness area within the town.

Coming in second place was Stockholm with 381,200 minutes over the ten days. The small Saskatchewan community will receive $5,000 for their efforts during the challenge and will be put towards building a mini golf course.

The community association prize was taken by Saskatoon Lakeridge with over 300,000 minutes.
